PHYSICAL EDUCATION and SPORTS PREMIUM
The Intent, implementation and Impact of our Curriculum – PE.
PE at Holy Trinity aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
It is our intent at Holy Trinity to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to pupil’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. We intend for children to develop a range of skills to enable co-ordination and mastery of the body across a range of activities. At Holy Trinity we plan lessons for children to engage in activities which involve the whole body, maintaining flexibility and develop strength and endurance. We intend for out children to become independent learners, team players and fair whilst developing their ability to be reflective about their and others performances. Whilst equipping children with skills and knowledge we aim to develop children who have a life long love of sport and a passion for a healthy lifestyle.
Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Holy trinity, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, children are taught about healthy life style, how to reflect on their abilities, how to apply skills to games and how to develop a respectful sportsmanship manner. Our impact is therefore to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
Pupils at Holy Trinity participate in weekly high quality PE and sporting activities. Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports and skills to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavors to encourage not only physical development but also well-being. We spend our sport’s premium money in an effective way which enables us to give our children new experiences, time to learn, practice and embed new skills and knowledge. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, endeavor to provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. Throughout the selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their innate ability, gender, cultural or ethnic background. will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential. We aim to develop the children’s skill acquisition and abilities whilst improving stamina, fitness, application of skills, tactical thinking and resilience.
The impact of our curriculum is assessed through observation in lessons and extra-curricular activities as well as through discussion with the children. Swimming skills are assessed by the swimming instructors and fed back to the teachers. We assess the children’s understanding of how to keep healthy in a variety of formative ways. These can include discussion, written work such as posters and oral presentations. Assessment is recorded on Target Tracker.
We aim 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.
