Here at St Paul’s we are committed to promoting the importance of good health and well-being for all our children. We recognise the important role that Physical Education plays in this, as well as the positive influence it has on concentration, attitude and academic achievement.

& well-being

We are incredibly proud to hold a Gold School Games mark that further highlights our passion for the promotion of physical education both in and out of school.

As well as being taught twice a week, physical education is incorporated into lots of different lessons. We strive to have active maths and English lessons where the children are up on their feet and actively learning. Currently, St Paul’s is working towards the ‘Active 30’. Active 30 has been developed to help schools reduce sedentary behaviour and increase physical activity in young people outside of timetabled curriculum PE.


On Friday the 12th November some of the members of year 5 and 6 took part in a footgolf competition at the Pingles, we competed against other schools in the area and had a brilliant time.
  • Bethany
  • Evie-Mae
  • Lainey
  • Jude
  • Bobby

“I was much better at it than I thought I would be.  Some of the holes I got in 2 shots!!!”

“I liked the fact that we could practice first, as it gave me a better idea of the course and how hard to kick.”

“I impressed myself with how well I did.  I liked the fact it was more about taking part than winning.”

“I enjoyed the challenge of the variety of holes, some were far harder than others.  I’d like to go back to the Pingles and challenge my family to a round of footgolf.”

“I enjoyed representing the school and I tried my hardest to beat Jude!”


On Monday the 22nd November we attended a dodgeball event at Queen Elizabeth School. It was organised by School Games and was superbly run by the Sports Leaders from QE. We had a great time playing against schools from the local area. All schools were judged against the School Games values of: teamwork, respect and honesty and we were delighted that we came 1st.
  • Isabel
  • Alessia
  • Mirsat
  • Marino
  • Emma
  • Evelyn
  • Lexi

“I really enjoyed playing as part of a team.”

“I learned that being honest and working as part of a team was really important to be successful.”

“The event helped me to realise the importance of rules in sport and I enjoyed it as it was something that I had never done before.”

“It gave me the opportunity to show respect to my teammates and the opposition. I enjoyed it more than anything in my life and I never thought I’d get a gold medal!”

“I never realised how much fun dodgeball is! I’d like to play again!”

“I was so happy to be chosen for the event and I loved it. When they said we had won I couldn’t believe it!”

“I enjoyed taking part in sport with my friends, I now want to try different sports and see what’s out there.”

Indoor rowing competition at Etone

This year we participated in the School Games indoor rowing competition for the first time. We competed against 6 other schools and were delighted to come 2 overall. The children were amazing and gave everything they had got to do their very best.

  • Millie B
  • A

  • Ella

“It was exhausting, weirdly harder at the start than the end.  It really helped having friends cheering you on.”

“I was determined to at least match my friend’s distance – we all smashed over 310 metres in a minute and a half!”

“The relay was a fun challenge.  Everyone was screaming and cheering and the change- over bits were frantic. In 4 minutes we managed to row 2078 metres and that included the change-over!”

“We all felt happy, surprised and proud to come 2nd and win a medal!”

“My favourite bit was the victory disco on the mini-bus back!”
