Physical Education

Physical Education (PE) at St. Paul's

Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development.  Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others.  Therefore, at St. Paul’s we ensure that both teachers and children are aware of its importance. We provide the broad and balanced programme of physical education we believe every child should have; with activities designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, purposeful and regular. Through providing positive experiences, a lifelong interest in physical activity is encouraged. The range of physical activities is wide and includes athletics, dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and outdoor education. A high-quality programme is designed to satisfy the needs, abilities and interests of all individual children.

At St Paul’s each class will receive 2 hours of physical education per week.  In addition to class teachers, coaches from outside agencies lead sessions for children throughout the school. The children have the opportunity to receive high quality PE sessions from Beth Tweddle Gymnastics, Stockport County Foundation in the Community and Tameside Sports Coaching.

We are highly motivated in encouraging the children to take part in a wide range of before-school and after-school extra-curricular activities. We also enter a wide range of sports events in order to promote competition and teamwork.
