At St Bartholomew’s all children have access to 2 hours of physical activity a week. Each class is allocated a one hour lesson in the new MUGA which has just been built. We are currently using GetSet4PE scheme which has provided staff with lots of new ideas and a variety of different sports for the children learn.

This year we have purchased lots of new equipment to ensure each child has the correct equipment for the lesson. Each class has their own equipment for break and lunch times to promote physical activity. The school has bought into the West Leeds School Sports Partnership. This allows the school to enter organised sports competitions each week, these range from year 1 to year 6. We also receive support from a qualified sports coach from Leeds Rhinos for 3 hours a week.
