Physical Education & Sports Premium

At Holy Trinity CE Primary School, we believe in the importance of developing ‘Sport and Healthy lifestyles’ amongst our children.

Physical Education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities. We also like to mix some maths in with our P.E. by doing ‘Wake and Shake’ every morning!  

Physical Education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. This enables them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

The national curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.

  • All children are physically active for sustained periods of time.

  • All children engage in competitive sports and activities.

  • Lead healthy, active lives

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
