Physical Education

Curriculum Intent:

To provide all children with high quality physical education and sport provision, enabling them to develop their sporting knowledge and skills and the competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities. To provide all children with the understanding to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle through engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable and accessible for all.

Sequencing and Progression

The curriculum map is designed in such a way that children are able to build on their prior learning. Basic core skills are revisited at the start of each unit to allow children to understand and select the skills that are required. These are then embedded throughout the unit. The skills are revisited each week and built on as the children’s bank of knowledge grows. Children's knowledge is built upon throughout each year and across the year groups.

How we teach diversity at Trinity

In the Early Years, children have the opportunity to be physically active in their environment, through play. They have regular access to appropriate outdoor space where they are able to practise movement skills and have access to sporting equipment such as balls, rackets and trikes, providing them with the opportunity to engage in daily sporting activities. From the spring term in Reception, children have a weekly PE session where they are able to engage in activities such as throwing and catching and travelling in a range of different movements. These gross and fine motor skills are vital for their development to enable them to pursue happy, healthy and active lives.

From Y1-6, children have a weekly, hour long PE lesson. Within the half-term units which include gymnastics, dance, invasive games, striking and fielding, athletics and swimming, there is a significant focus on key concepts such as core strength, throwing and catching and multi-skills. The children also have opportunities throughout the year to compete in intra competitions with fellow Trinity students and inter competitions with other Haringey schools. They are able to develop fundamental behaviours that emerge from participating in and competing in sports.

Trinity has sought to provide sporting opportunities for all children through accessible, challenging, multi-sport experiences at all ages and abilities. In turn, this will ensure that all children develop character and learn skills such as problem-solving, resilience, perseverance, confidence, sportsmanship and teamwork.
