PE and Healthy Schools at RJS



Each class takes part in at least 2 hours of taught PE sessions per week. Usually, this consists of 'competitive, skill based sports' for one hour, with the second hour basing itself on gymnastic/dance skills. Our lessons are planned in conjunction with the Amber Valley Sports Partnership, to ensure we teach high quality, purposeful lessons which support, embed skills and challenge our children.


Other Sporting Activities:

  • In years 3 and 4, children also take part in the Swimming scheme at Ripley Leisure Centre, whereby children attend one swimming lesson per week, lasting between 30-45 minutes.
  • The 5/60 scheme - teaching children the importance of healthy eating and completing 60 minutes of activity each day.
  • Gymnastics Coaching
  • Cricket Coaching
  • Visits to Ripley Academy - multi-sports festivals, working with Sports leaders etc. 


Ensuring high quality PE teaching

At Ripley Junior School, we work in partnership with the Amber Valley Sports Partnership to ensure our children have purposeful, challenging PE sessions. By using the partnership, we are able to improve the teaching of PE by using the expert skills and knowledge of partnership staff to develop the skills and knowledge of our staff. Across the school, each term works with the sports coach for at least one term per year, focusing on key skills which can be applied to a variety of competitive sports. Linking in with competition calendars, we also teach our pupils the rules and skills to compete in a variety of local school competitions.
