PE Premium at Robinsfield
At Robinsfield Infant School PE and School Sport play a very important role. We believe that taking part in physical activity not only keeps children fit and healthy but also contributes to their holistic development.
We encourage everyone to be physically active, whether this involves walking, scooting or cycling to school, getting active at play times or taking part in sporting clubs after school. We are proud of our achievements and hold a Gold Accreditation for Healthy Schools London.
