At St Peter’s Primary School we know that PE plays an important role in the development of our children. PE leads to improved fitness, health and well-being, concentration, attitude and academic achievement.

It can help children:

 Raise their achievement

 Excel in different areas

 Build self-esteem

 Learn to co-operate as a team and display leadership skills

 Experience healthy competition – learn to cope with life’s successes and defeats

 To be more responsible for themselves and others

 Develop a healthy lifestyle


Through PE, clubs and competitions children can develop the St Peter’s 5 Rs of: Relationships, Resourcefulness, Reflective, Risk taking and Resilience.

We aim to encourage a lifetime love of sport and keeping fit and encourage children to be the best that they can be.


PE during the week

At St Peter’s we offer 2 sessions of PE a week. For one of these sessions we follow the Real PE scheme of work. This focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique approach to teaching and learning in PE. In the other session we focus on more traditional sports specific skills and games.
