Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (P.E.S.S.P.A.)
Here at All Saints’, we believe that Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (P.E.S.S.P.A.) plays a vital part in promoting social inclusion, healthy lifestyles and self confidence in our pupils.

From spring 2021, we are introducing the daily mile to help us with our Active 20 pledge.
Our Sports’ Coach – Mr. Adderson – is currently working with the children at lunchtimes to increase their physical activity and encourage skills associated with team work and cooperation.
Our Lenten Challenge is linked to Physical Activity. Take a look here: Lent – Strava 2021
