Congratulations to the Year 5 and 6 Athletics team for qualifying to the Sports Hall Athletics Final alongside other Wyre and Fylde schools. The team competed in a variety of events and overall came 9th place out of an amazing 18 schools!

Well done Years 5 and 6!



Swimming and Water Safety

We provide swimming instruction in Key Stage 2. In particular, pupils are taught to: swim competently, confidently, and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m; use a range of strokes effectively; perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

In 2017, the % of pupils achieving KS2 = 93.3%.

In 2018, the % of pupils achieving KS2 = 92%.   

Congratulations to the St John's Football Team for finishing top of their league, for winning the Champion of Champions League Tournament, and for winning the Football Rally. Well done to all who have played in the team over the school year, and to the players who made up the Tournament and Rally team. A great big thank you to Mrs Ward for giving up her valuable time every week.  

All classes take part in the Daily 'Mile' - walking/ jogging/ running for ten minutes every day. The health benefits of a physically active lifestyle are well documented. There is a large amount of evidence to suggest that regular physical activity can help to prevent and treat many different conditions such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. It also supports children’s mental health and wellbeing, and can improve academic attainment.

The official opening of the MUGA!

We are in the Wyre and Fylde School Sports Partnership.



We enjoyed taking part in 'National School Sport Week' at St. John's. Key Stage 1 children enjoyed their 'Sports Day', whilst some children in Key Stage 2 took part in the local swimming galas. Children were encouraged to walk to school on Wednesday and aim to do 5 hours of physical exercise. Many children gained a certificate for achieving this. 


Throughout the week, each class took it in turns to run sporting activities during playtimes. It was great fun!
