  1. 95% of parents said their child enjoys P.E. in school.
  2. The majority of parents felt positively about P.E. with 31% saying it’s important for children to be getting regular exercise and 24% saying it’s excellent.
  3. According to parents the most popular areas of P.E. are soccer, games and being outdoors. 16% of parents say their child enjoys all areas of P.E.

  5. When asked for ways in which we could improve P.E in our school 35% of parents said that it was good as it is and couldn’t be improved. A lot of parents suggested more time for P.E., P.E. on more days each week, and letting children choose the activities.
