At Holy Trinity C of E Primary School we believe Physical Education is an important part of the curriculum, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. We believe a balanced programme is essential to the growth of the whole child: their intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development. It provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and promotes character building, co-operation and self-esteem.
We encourage the children to achieve their personal goals, to feel satisfaction and enjoyment as well as provide the physical challenges which enable them to value the importance of determination and effort. We offer numerous opportunities for children to participate in competitive activities, both in and out of school, and are active members of the Surrey Heath Primary Schools' Sports Association.
Holy Trinity provides all pupils with two hours of high quality Physical Education a week. We deliver this through two 60 minutes lessons; delivered by specialist PE teachers or the class teacher. In each year, pupils access gymnastics, dance, games, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities. Pupils in Years 4 and 5 also take part in an intensive one week swimming programme at Gordon’s School.
We have welcomed funding from government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
We have spent the sports premium funding innovatively to provide a legacy that will benefit the school and children for many years to come through staff development activities. The enthusiasm, investment of time and expertise from our PE Leader has boosted staff confidence and developed the quality PE teaching across the school.
At Holy Trinity School we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:
1. Physical Education
2. Competitive Sport
Healthy Active Lifestyles
