Every child in our school takes part in two PE lessons per week, taught by our PE coach, class teachers and coaches from the Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation (THYSF). We cover a wide range of sporting activities such as dance, gymnastics, swimming, team games, invasion games, athletics, striking and fielding games, racket sports and outdoor and adventurous activities. Children are also encouraged to take part in physical activities during their break and lunch time with equipment available for them to use.
At OLSJ, we run after school sports clubs on a daily basis and all children are welcome to apply for the clubs that they are enthusiastic and passionate about. Our registers for these change every half-term to help us cater for all children who wish to have a place in these clubs.
Children at OLSJ are given opportunities to represent our school in competitive sport as part of cluster tournaments within the borough of Tower Hamlets. Children are also given the opportunity to compete in cross-borough competitions.
At OLSJ we regularly organise internal competitions as well as sports days to increase the number of children who are able to raise their fitness and nurture a talent in a sporting environment.
