Physical Education

At St Paul’s CofE Primary School, Kingston Hill all children will actively take part in a minimum of two hours of Physical Education a week. These sessions cover a whole range of sports, activities, skills and techniques and are aimed at providing all children the opportunity to enjoy and achieve.

Further to this, through the Kingston School Sports Partnership (KSSP) we are able to offer the children a chance to participate in competitive sport against schools throughout the Year. In the past year we have competed in tournaments for football, mini tennis, netball, swimming, skipping, cross country running, kwik-cricket and sportshall athletics and continue to perform well at these events.
