Is an hour a week enough? Ds's timetable is one hour one week then 2 hours the following week, one of these sessions is swimming.

Just wondered what other schools offered. smile

2 sessions a week here - 45 mins each - but also 2 outdoor playtimes each day!

Three sessions a week here - 45 minutes each I think. Plus lots of sporty after school clubs.

DD is in reception so a year younger but she does 2 x 45 minute PE sessions a week, plus swimming once a week and then outdoor play at least twice a day.

She's shattered. grin

This is on the timetable? not counting outside activites.

DD has 2 sessions a week - 1 is meant to be indoors and 1 outdoors, but they tend to do mainly indoors if it is cold outside. I'd like to see more, but there is so much else in the timetable I can't see where it would fit.

My niece goes to a private school (DD is state) and she does sport every day - but this is only achieved by an having an extra 50 minutes on the day - think I'd rather have the shorter school day and do "active things" out of school.

Oh and in Y1 I still get the impression that the bulk of the lesson is changing into PE stuff and then changing back grin

ds has an hour of games, and 45 mins of PE a week.

In year 1 it was one 45 min session of PE per week an 1 double session of swimming per fortnight

Now ds is year 3 it is PE once week, games once a week and swimming once a week.

2 hours of PE is compulsary a week.

2 hours PE is a target not compulsory

DC get one session of indoor and one session of outdoor (approx 45 mins each) a week in ks2 and the same plus a music and movement type session in ks1. Plus they have a block of swimming at some point!

I stand corrected mrz, always been told it is compulsary. Maybe I have worked in schools which consider it so?!
