Holy Trinity primary school believes that PE, physical activity & school sport (PESSPA) is a vital part of school life and ultimately our children’s future well-being. It is therefore our intent to provide an inclusive, broad, varied and balanced PE curriculum that ensures ALL children will benefit, whether through enhancing existing skills, learning new skills or being introduced to new sports, competition, clubs, teams and organisations.
It is our intent to ensure children understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and to equip them with the tools to do so through health and well-being education. Children must understand how to take care of themselves both physically and mentally in order to be successful as adults. Children will need to learn how to prepare themselves for sport and PE through changing, being equipped with pe kit suitable for the activity and have a knowledge of health and safety i.e – hair tied back, earrings removed etc.
It is our intent to fully deliver and build upon the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to meet the needs of our pupils. The aims of national curriculum are that children should:
- To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- To be physically active for sustained periods of time
- To engage in competitive sports and activities
- To lead healthy, active lives.
