Sports Leaders, 2022-2023: 'Our greatest achievement this year was running Sports Day and encouraging our teams. We have also run workshops like archery which has given children the chance to try new sports.'

Intent of our PE curriculum


At Trotts Hill Primary School we believe that the teaching of Physical Education (P.E) is crucial to building healthy lives for all of members of our school community. We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum to ensure that all children:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

(National Curriculum, 2014)


Therefore as well as reaching for high standards in our PE provision, we also aim for our children to be active learners across the curriculum, and provide opportunities for children to be physically active throughout the entire school day, including break, lunchtime and before / after school.
