    Hi,
    I'd be really grateful if anyone could give me an answer to this question: Is there a legal requirement for a certain percentage of time be allocated to the different units in KS1 and 2? Do different units have a different weighting? Are there legal requirements or just guidelines in place? Also, I'd be intersested to know how much time overall is given to PE in a week in KS1 and 2 in your schools. Is everyone managing the 'two hour' minimum aspiration or do people feel this is unrealistic? Is anyone actually exceeding this? Thank you in advance.

    I think the thing to remember is that the 2 hours includes changing time and travelling time. If you work in KS1 you will know changing can easily take 15 mins each way, wasting half an hour of that 2hours. Also, if/when you go swimming, the time getting there counts.....
    Things like daily wake &shake count too (5mins a day = 25 mins per week).
    I've never been in a school where more than 2 hours happened. In my experience, as soon as a visitor, school play or anything else comes along, PE (along with RE) is the first thing to get dropped.
