Sport/PE

Our Vision statement

‘At Clover Hill Primary School, we aim to embed the culture and enjoyment of sport and physical activity.We are passionate to ensure that all children have the knowledge, skills, determination and motivation to be physically and mentally healthy in the hope that it will lead to life-long participation in sport.’

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.
  • Recently we have introduced ‘The Daily Mile’ challenge where we are encouraging our children to run/walk/skip a mile a day around the school yard (10 laps). Please watch our video below
