PE Intent 2022-23
Holy Trinity PE and Sports Premium Grant 2022-23
At Holy Trinity Primary School, Physical Education is at the heart of our curriculum. We aim to engage and inspire pupils to take part fully in PE and develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We understand how important physical movement is to children’s mental wellbeing and believe that this should be incorporated into every school day and not just confined to PE lessons. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities which enable all children to succeed; to enjoy their learning; to be resilient and consistently strive to be the best that they can be. Our PE curriculum wraps around our Big Ideas of: Aspiration and Inspiration, Empathy and Respect, Diversity and Unity, Who I am and How I Care for Myself and Embracing Change and Solving Problems. More widely, it builds on our Christian value of Koinonia through sustained teamwork and sportsmanship.
