Physical Education (PE)


We are committed to providing great opportunities for sport and other physical activities because we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

We ensure that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well trained and enthusiastic teachers and instructors. 

Children follow a fun and varied curriculum, which includes gym, dance, athletics, multi skills, swimming (Year 3), cricket, rounders, basketball and football. Our curriculum also includes judo sessions for pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6. We run a Sports Day every year, and a cycling proficiency course for Year 6 pupils. We also make use of professional coaches during the year to work with year groups.

We have a boys' football team and a girls' team, who play league and friendly matches with local schools. We also take part in  other local sporting events such as the Bromley Primary Schools Cross Country Race, Athletics competition at Norman Park, and the Mayor's Cross Country Race. Many of these competitions could not have been entered without the support and commitment of parents, which is very much appreciated. 

We also offer a number of sporting extra curricular clubs, such as cross country running, football, judo, gymnastics, and dance.

School swimming lessons at AJS

Every child who attends AJS will receive school swimming lessons in Year 3.  We always take every child, regardless of their ability, to complete a 10 week block of swimming lessons at The Beckenham Spa.  We value the support of parents who come along to help.
