PE at St Peter’s
At St. Peter’s the children have lots of opportunities to participate in Physical Education. We aim for every child to participate and enjoy sport both for its health benefits and to improve their skill. They follow a syllabus which includes at least two hours directed time in school, including lots of different sports, such as Gymnastics, Dance, Outdoor Games, Athletics and Ball Games. The children will also participate in a two-week course in intensive swimming, which is usually undertaken in Year 3.
They also have the opportunity to join lots of after school clubs, such as Gymnastics, Football and Multisports. The clubs are open to different age groups and are both before and after school lead by coaches and specialist teachers.
At St. Peter’s we enter the children for a variety of competitions and events. They have successfully competed in Borough Competitions, Athletic meetings, Netball and Football matches both at borough level and against other schools. Furthermore, we also enter a variety of pupils to represent their Borough in their chosen sport.
We were successfully awarded the PE Quality Mark in 2022 for our commitment to Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity. This award is valid until 2025.
