St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.

Physical Education

Physical Education covers the areas of dance, gymnastics, games, swimming and fitness. The children are taught to develop their own physical abilities and skills. We encourage healthy attitude and lifestyle alongside physical activities. 

Children will have opportunity to take part in sporting activities as an extra curricular activity throughout the school year.


All children require their P.E kit to be available in school. The kit is a blue t- shirt and black shorts or black jogging bottoms (especially in the winter). All kit should be labelled with the child's name.​ 

WOW Badge Competition

This month the children were asked to design a WOW badge. This year's theme is: Walk Through Time. Closing date is Friday 18th March 2022. Three lucky children will be selected from our school and entered into the competition. These children will enter the draw and  get the chance to possibly have their design turned into one of the badges featuring in the 2022-2023 program. Good Luck!  



Well done to all of the children who walked to school this half term!

Write Dance


Reception have really enjoyed their write dance lessons this half term. Each session we start out by using our own movements to dance to a piece of music, we then use gross motor movements to complete a dance before using the same movements on a smaller scale to mark make in different mediums, such as chalk, crayons and shaving foam!
