Christ the King Catholic Primary School

Physical Education

At Christ the King Catholic Primary School, our physical education curriculum aims to inspire children to lead healthy lifestyles and excel in sport and other physically demanding activities. PE is an integral part of our curriculum and we believe that it provides children the opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness throughout their lives. Therefore, we believe that our children should be physically active every day, whether through PE lessons, extra-curriculum activities, active play times or competitive sport.


Children at CTK take part in a wide range of sports and we work closely with the community, as we have coaches from Arsenal and Islington Local Authority. Every year group receives a half term of coaching from each specialist and Years 3, 4 and 5 attend swimming classes throughout the year.


We also believe that children should have the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as team work, fairness and respect. We have a range of teams that participate in competitions with our federated school Sacred Heart, the Maamulaha Schools’ Sports Events and the Islington Schools Competitions. Every summer, we hold school sports day as well.

Due to current government guidelines, children at Christ the King are not attending swimming and are being asked to come into school wearing their PE kits on the days they have PE.
