P.E. and School Sports


At St Paul's we are continually developing opportunities for our children to experience a wide breadth of P.E. and sport which has become even more important in these restricted times.  


Over the last year we have developed a daily sports development program for all pupils that is 'socially distanced', incorporating class/house bubbles and introducing the skills for Rugby, Football, Tennis, Basketball, Netball, Hockey, Table Tennis and Archery.  This has provided the children with a wide variety of different sports and has greatly improved their gross motor skills.  


Once restrictions are lifted, will will resume our use of local facilities each week for Swimming and Gymnastics and reintroduce our annual sports day.  It's a day where we can share and celebrate our sporting skills and its always great fun!  Parents are encouraged to come along and cheer on their children.  At lunch time share a picnic with them before the races in the afternoon.   We will recruit new Sports Ambassadors across the school to voice the opinions of each class. These pupils will have regular meetings with our P.E. Leader to discuss what clubs they would like, review the current clubs and to evaluate the effectiveness of PE. across the School.  This will be a big responsibility for our Ambassadors but our pupils embrace these roles and hugely contribute to improving PE and Sport.  We also have plans to hold inter house/bubble competitions for trophies in each of the sports.  


Our successful Football teams (both Girls and Boys) will once again take part in the Gloucester Primary Schools Football Association tournaments.
