At St Peter and St Paul Infant School we believe that sport and P.E. improves a variety of skills and attitudes, health and well-being and can shape behaviours that lead to greater inclusion and cohesion. The children have 2 P.E lessons each week. A balance of dance, gymnastics and games are taught throughout the year. Each term one of the 3 classes goes swimming for 6 afternoons, Year 2 in the autumn, Year 1 in the spring and Reception in the summer. The children also have an hour long lunch break and 2 other playtimes totalling 30 minutes.
Since the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Government has committed £150 million pounds to the promotion of sport and fitness in schools. This is allocated to each school as Sports Premium Funding and is ring-fenced. Please click the links below for further information.
