At St Anselm’s Catholic Primary School, all children are taught physical education by his or her class teacher. All lessons allow children the opportunity to be taught a vast array of physical skills, according to the requirements of the National Curriculum.
In line with government recommendation, children must have two hours of indoor and outdoor PE timetabled per week, through a variety of topics such as gymnastics, dance and games.
