Welcome to the St. Peter's Sports Page.
At St Peter’s we believe physical education is an essential part of a child’s development. Our vision is to develop a balanced program offering a variety of activities to enhance skills in physical education and build upon healthy lifestyles. Positive participation in physical education and sports will enable children to build, self-esteem, team work and positive attitudes towards exercises, which improve children’s overall well-being.
We work with highly trained sports' coaches to offer the children a wide range of sporting opportunities both during curriculum time and at after school clubs.
Home learning - PE ideas!
Even in this difficult time, it's important for children to remain as active as possible in order to stay physically and mentally healthy.
At the bottom of this page are some documents with plenty of ideas to keep children moving and entertained :)
Please have a look and enjoy!
Birmingham School Games Challenge Competition
RE: Birmingham School Games Virtual Personal Challenges Parental Information
Welcome to the introduction of the Birmingham School Games Virtual Personal Challenges, brought to you by the 11 School Games Organisers (SGOs) across the city and Sport Birmingham. For those that do not know the School Games is a national initiative which forms part of the legacy from the London 2012 Olympics. The School Games is a free opportunity for all young people to engage in physical activity and competitive sport. For more information on the School Games please visit www.yourschoolgames.com or ask to speak to the Head of PE or PE Coordinator in school about it.
Recently, you may have seen the promotion on social media for our new School Games virtual personal best challenges with our first challenge going live on Monday 1st June.
The SGOs are asking all schools in Birmingham to help support us with reaching as many families as possible so that all children can have access to these challenges. If parents/children have access to the internet they can sign up at www.sgochallenge.com and then follow the instructions to register. In the case where children do not have access to the internet, they can still take part in the challenges, they just have to submit their results to school, ideally to the PE lead who will be asked to complete their information on a centralised spreadsheet. Once a challenge has finished, these pupils will have just as much chance as finishing in the top 5 as anyone else.
Each School Games area has a unique code for registering. Our unique area code for registering is ‘shenley’. This code is unique for our area, so please don't use any other codes that you may come across unless you are linked to another school in another area. If you are unsure then please ask the school.
The virtual challenge portal is ever evolving to ensure that we are providing the best experience for our young people so please do bear with us if we experience any technical difficulties. Please also rest assured that we are keeping a close eye on everything, so if it is not working we will know about it.
If you have any issues registering or uploading results please contact Mrs Stimpson - email@example.com
Sign up at www.sgochallenge.com and then follow the instructions to register!
If you have any questions about Sport in St. Peter's, please see Mrs Stimpson(Year 5) - PE Co-ordinator
Well done to all the home learners as well as those children coming into school, who have been participating in the School Games Challenges - we won a mini award! Fantastic effort everyone! This certificate shows that we had the most children take part in our local area. We will display the certificate on the KS2 PE board in September. Keep it up - the challenges will continue all the way until the school holidays :)

Skiing Competition at the Ackers Centre in Birmingham
On 22 March St. Peters School participated in the Birmingham and South Midlands Schools Ski Race. St. Peters entered one team of 3 boys into the under 10s category. Each skier must make 2 timed runs of the slalom course and the best time from a skier’s two runs will be used for the team event. As well as competing for the school each skier was also ranked using the sum of both times for their individual category.
Competing for St. Peters was William Moss (aged 6), Finley Moss (aged 9) and William Townend (age 10). St Peters came 1st in the under 10s category and won the 2015 trophy for Birmingham and South Midlands. With over 20 schools competing from as far away as Kenilworth and Warwick this is a fantastic achievement. Individually William Moss came 3rd in the under 8s category, Finley Moss came 2nd in the under 10s and William Townend came 3rd in the under 12s winning 2 medals each.
Well done to them all.
