At Holy Trinity CE Primary School we believe in the importance of developing ‘Sport and Healthy lifestyles’ amongst our children and local community. We promote a long term healthy lifestyle that is enjoyable and fulfilling. Throughout the year, we will develop this through a range of sport activities including: athletics, dance, gymnastics, games, aquatics and OAA. We also like to mix some Maths in with our P.E. with ‘Wake and Shake’ every morning!
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
are physically active for sustained periods of time
engage in competitive sports and activities
lead healthy, active lives
Here are a few ideas of how to stay healthy and 'sugar smart'.

How to stay active at Holy Trinity
As a school we ensure our children are staying fit and healthy by ensuring all children are involved in physical activity for at least 30 minutes per day. Below is a heatmap of a typical day at Holy Trinity Primary School showing the different levels of activity throughout the day.
Inactive: All, or almost all, of the time is spent sitting down
Little activity: Sitting down might be broken up with short bursts of activity. Pupils will spend some working time standing up and moving around the teaching space
Some activity: There will be some deliberate, planned movement and physical activity built into the session
High activity There will be significant periods of physical activity that are planned and built into the session for all pupils
