At St. Peter’s, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to a child’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for children’s increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.

Sporting Achievement Display

In school, we have a wonderful display to share our achievements with the school. If your child has received an award, trophy or certificate in any sporting activity that they do outside of school we would love to hear about it. If your child takes their award to Mr. Moorcroft he can take a photograph and display it for all to see or provide a picture and a small write up from home. 



At St. Peter’s Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport. We aim to embody our school mission statement to ‘become strong in body, mind and spirit.’
