At Holy Trinity, our intention in PE is to:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Ensure that children are physically active for sustained periods of time
- Give children opportunities to engage in competitive sports and activities
- Ensure that all children lead healthy, active lives
At Holy Trinity, PE is taught as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas. It is taught at a minimum of two PE sessions per week. Outside sports coaches are regularly invited in to teach the children specific skills in cricket, tennis, dance, gymnastics and archery.
We teach lessons so that children:
- Have fun and experience success in sport
- Have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development
- Secure and build on a range of skills
- Develop good sporting attitudes
- Understand basic rules
- Experience positive competition
- Learn in a safe environment
- Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.
P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life.
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically- demanding activities.
At Holy Trinity, we provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
