At Saint John Houghton Catholic Academy we strive to develop the physical, social and emotional well-being of our students. We teach our students to be physically active whilst enabling them to develop knowledge and understanding of a range of activities and to use this in order to develop technique and improve performance.
We aim to provide an engaging curriculum that allows all our students the opportunity to experience a range of activities to develop tactics and strategies as well as compositional ideas. We also strive to deliver an understanding of the importance of an active healthy lifestyle and the importance that this plays in everyday life.
In addition the PE Department encourages students to develop leadership skills as well as an appreciation of others strengths and weaknesses. Students are taught the importance of rules and the part they play in the delivery of safe and fair physical activity. At Saint john Houghton CVA we provide opportunities for students to take part in competitive sport both at intra- school and interschool level, as well as providing the opportunity for students to engage in many extra-curricular school activities.
