PE is taught at Holy Family to develop in children a confidence and desire to participate in physically demanding activities and to provide children with the knowledge to create healthier bodies and happier minds.

We want our children to develop a lifelong love of learning and happiness through our school’s concepts: team work, friendship, sharing and resilience.

Holy Family – PE Implementation

PE at Holy Family

PE is taught through a range of enquiry-based teaching and learning methods, practical activities, independent and group work, problem solving, and through cross-curricular enquiry. KS1 & KS2 receive two hours of physically demanding activity per week – the first session is delivered by  our specialist coach, Mr. Newton. The second session builds upon these skills and is delivered by their class teacher. EYFS engage in timetabled PE  sessions but are also encouraged to explore the world around them and use a range of movement skills through continuous provision.

Outdoor education sessions with Mr Parker (EYFS – Y6) also provide children with further opportunities to apply skills, concepts and knowledge to problem solving in an outdoor learning environment.

Below is our PE provision map for the year. Further down you will be able to find our PE uniform policy and afterschool provision timetable.

Healthy Holy Family

At Holy Family, we encourage all our children to actively participate in physically demanding activity. We focus on participation and rewarding effort for all children but also provide the competitive element for those who want to take their love of sport further . We attend weekly Bassetlaw School Games events and host our very own Fitness Week during the school year. Please see below our achievements.

If your child has been active outside of school, please let the office know and bring in their awards / achievements for us to celebrate in our Friday assemblies.

PE Uniform policy:

From September, we ask that children come dressed in the correct PE uniform on their PE days.

We ask that children in Y5 bring their swimming costume in a separate bag to change into over lunchtime.  Girls will need a full one piece swimming costume and boys need to wear trunks/ shorts. Swim shorts must not be baggy, extend beyond your child’s knees or contain pockets. This is for health and safety reasons; your child will not be able to swim if their swim wear does not follow School Swimming’s policy.

Children will need a re-usable water bottle.
