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.

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.

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.

Year 5 and 6 girls were invited to The Leisure Box for some free after school sessions on the Klip and Climb.  They loved it and it was a great way to introduce girls into new sports.  Thank you to Fiona Callaghan - our SGO - for organising the event.


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.


Year 5 competed in a Duathlon where they had to run, cycle and then run again.  It was hard work for them but they loved the challenge.

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