- The World Health Organisation recommend that children over the age of six need at least AN HOUR of physical activity every day. In St. Dympna's N.S this is promoted through inclusive physical activity throughout each school day.
- Our school provides twice daily playground breaks. Equipment is made available to pupils and pupils are allowed to run. We are very thankful to have access to a pitch at the rear of the school, playtime here is rotated so all pupils have the chance to access this area. On wet days, children will stay indoors and complete physical activities with teachers. Go Noodle is a firm favourite!
We even use our outdoor classroom seating to keep active and enjoy the beautiful outdoors!!
