PE at Holy Trinity

Physical education at Holy Trinity aims to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. This includes, but is not limited to, dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities. Through physical education, we wish to teach our children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Holy Trinity, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.


We are committed to delivering a PE curriculum that is accessible to all and will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they will know more, remember more, understand more and build on previously learned skills. As a result of this, children will:

  • Increase and develop their basic fundamental movement skills
  • Increase their understanding of the importance of a warm up and cool down
  • Increase their understanding of the importance of living an active and healthy lifestyle
  • Develop their understanding of “physical literacy”
  • Develop an understanding of how to differentiate a skill/activity effectively. 

Extra-Curricular Activities


At Holy Trinity, we believe that physical education shouldn’t only be taught through PE lessons during the school day. Therefore, we aim to offer many extracurricular activities. Below are some examples of when these activities are offered:


Lunchtimes - Trained sports leaders from Years 5 and 6 set up and deliver sporting activities to all children to encourage an active lunch times. Mr Hastilow (Progressive Sports) also delivers activities on a Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime.


After school sports provision is delivered by both Progressive Sports and sometimes Miss Harris and Miss Gray-Davis. We offer a range of clubs on a half-term rotation. Clubs include, but are not limited to: gymnastics, tennis, archery, dodgeball, multi-skills and basketball.


After school provision is also available through an external provider Sports4Kids. Their sessions have a small charge for parents and is arranged through the company.


Children in KS2 are also frequently offered the opportunity to compete against other schools in competitions arranged by the School Games Organisers. They host a range of activities; some competitive and some aimed at participation rather than competition.


We understand the importance of promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing so our PSHE scheme of learning is used to teach children about mental health safely and effectively.
