Physical Education

Physical Education is concerned with the promotion of positive attitudes towards physical activity and well-being. At Holy Trinity RC Primary children are helped to acquire the skills needed to participate with confidence and enjoyment in a range of individual team activities at school and in the wider community, and to appreciate the place of regular exercise as a way of keeping fit.

All children take part in a minimum of two hours of high quality PE and sporting activities each week provided by a professional sports coach alongside a member of staff.

A well-balanced programme of sporting activities is provided for the children that includes opportunities for expressive and creative movement through dance, as well as gymnastics, swimming, athletics, games and outdoor and adventurous pursuits.

Documents are available to view at the bottom of the page (overview of topics, progression of skills etc...)

Learning through co-operative and competitive activities helps to promote an understanding of inter-personal relationships.

Children have the opportunity to take part in sporting activities within the school, and with other schools, including local and county tournaments and competitions.

Our Year 5 children all receive Playground Leader Training and support other children with various challenges and activities at playtimes.


We are thrilled to have been awarded the School Games Mark GOLD award again for our contribution to sports for 2022-2023. We are now working hard towards the 2023-2024 award.

Sports Day 

Physical Education is enriched through a wide range of well-attended extra-curricular clubs and activities. Such opportunities enable pupils to develop personal and social skills as well as preparing them for leisure activities in adult life.

Using our local facilities - The Leisure Box.  We are so lucky to be in walking distance of such a fantastic venue.


Our UKS2 Indoor Athletics Team competed against all the other Catholic Schools in the Pendle Cluster.  They had a great time and achieved some personal bests. The theme of the event was 'DETERMINATION' and they had that in abundance!  Well done to all who competed.

EYFS are catching a large ball and moving in different ways.


There's always lots of activities on offer at break times - our Sports Council help out with these.
