60 minutes of exercise for ALL CHILDREN

The Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that ‘all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school

At Clover Hill we strive to ensure that all children take part in at least 30 minutes exercise per day.

  • All children receive 2 x 1 hour PE sessions weekly
  • Active playtimes
  • Lunch time staff provide and encourage participation in sports activities every lunch time such as, football, basketball, netball, hockey, rounders, skipping and playground games and run regular competitions alongside.
