PE & Sport Provision at Holy Family Catholic Primary School

The intent of our PE curriculum at Holy Family is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve to their fullest potential as well as to inspire them to lead physically active lifestyles now, and for the rest of their lives.


At Holy Family, we follow the ‘Real PE’ curriculum and are proud to say that we are a Real PE Legacy school, representing the whole of Kent. In this role, we share the progress and impact of our curriculum implementation with other schools, both in the Kent area and nationally. By giving other schools and their staff the opportunity to observe our practice, we are able to inspire others to follow our example. This will undoubtedly have an impact on 1000s of learners now and for generations to come.


Our PE curriculum focuses on the whole child, team building, developing the skills to support others and taking responsibility for their own goals and achievements – all of this with an over-arching ethos of perseverance and challenge.


In all competitions (regardless of the level of success) and in curriculum PE, our children are encouraged to build the key skills of determination and resilience as well as developing the important learning behaviours that transfer into the classroom. We promote this ethos in PE by using learning 6 key learning 'Cogs' - Personal, Social, Cognitive, Creative, Physical and Health & Fitness - and recognising that that each child is an individual and works at their own pace. This inclusive approach centres on encouraging not only physical development but also enhanced well-being for all our pupils.


Our high quality PE and sport provision is further enhanced by the skills of Coach Jonathan from ‘Kick Sports’. Not only does he run after-school and lunchtime clubs for all year groups, but also supports the teachers and children in their PE lessons.



Home learning - Real PE at home - activities and games for the whole family

Real PE at home provides meaningful home learning for every child with games, activities and challenges which are all aligned to our Real PE in-school curriculum.

This free online platform hosts fun challenges, ideas, games and activities to help families to stay active inside and out through lockdown, winter and beyond.

School Sports Premium Funding

The Government provides each primary school throughout England with additional funding which is to be spent on improving the sports provision within schools. At Holy Family, we believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff, pupils and parents understand and can contribute to.  Our school recognises the values that a high quality PE and school sport curriculum gives pupils.
