Sports Premium

Mrs Peachey has taken over the leadership of Sport and PE this academic year. Please read her blog (below) about all the exciting things happening at Petersfield, made possible by the Government Funding the 'Sports Premium'.

With a total of 66 young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year. A special thanks to Mrs. Peachey for organising a range of clubs for the children to participate. Also to the parents who have been involved in running clubs at school or providing transport to and from competitions.

We look forward to applying once again in 2018!
