Curriculum

Sports

At Holy Trinity Pewley Down we are very proud of all the sports opportunities we have on offer. Nick Walker leads PE and sport across both sites, with Laura Sutton and Lucy Dolling working at the juniors and infants respectively. Please see the Policies page for our Sports Policy.

For information about how we teach PE as part of our weekly curriculum, see the Subject page which can be found here.

How we spend the Sports Premium

Sports Premium is funding, that the school receives from the government. The money should be used to support long lasting change in the teaching of Physical Education. There are 5 areas which have been highlighted as being key to these sustainable changes.

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement 
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport 
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils 
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport 

At Holy Trinity Pewley Down School, we have put together a plan of how we think we can best spend the money to support the needs of our school in making long term positive change. See below for how the Sport Premium was spent.

Platinum Award and 3-Star Mark Award for 2021-22

We have been awarded a Platinum award for our school games provision by Active Surrey. The purpose of School Games Mark is to reward and recognise a school’s engagement in keeping young people active.

The platinum award is available to those schools that have achieved the gold award in the last four years. Not only did we achieve gold this year but we then applied for the platinum.award. This is what Active Surrey had to say about us:

Congratulations Holy Trinity Pewley Down on achieving the Platinum School Games Mark Award for the 2021/2022 year. Only a small amount of schools across the country receive the Platinum award and it is very well deserved for all the effort that has been put in, by staff and pupils, to ensure every child has access to opportunities in physical activity and sport.

HTPD have achieved the award for ensuring there are physical activity opportunities at competitions in the local area, access to after school clubs and a comprehensive PE curriculum, but more importantly by fostering active habits throughout the school day. Ensuring a whole school approach makes HTPD one of the most active schools not just in the Guildford area but also in the county.

We are very happy to see the Platinum School Games Mark awarded to HTPD and it is thoroughly deserved.

We currently offer the following sports as part of our PE curriculum, as after-school clubs, and interschool fixtures. The sports we offer vary over the summer and winter months:

  • Football
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Rounders
  • Cross country
  • Judo
  • Dance/ Ballet
  • Basketball
  • Badminton

Clubs Policy

We aim to make Holy Trinity extracurricular clubs as inclusive as possible. As a result, they are generally free and provided on site by Holy Trinity Staff. We welcome everyone and no specific equipment is required, although PE clothing is important. There are a few clubs which we are unable to provide, so we invite experts in to coach. These clubs do charge a small amount. Please see the Clubs Page for further details. Many of our children represent the school in inter-school, county and national competitions. All of our children represent the school in intra-school house competitions.

Sports Fixtures

We have a comprehensive calendar of sports competitions across a wide range of different sports. This includes many inclusive and friendly matches at a range of levels and involves a wide range of children from across all year groups.

We attend events at regular venues, please click on the venue for a map.

Learning to Swim

Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 go to swimming lessons at Spectrum during PE time but learning to swim should not stop for all children when school swimming ends. It is so important that every child can swim so they are able to fully enjoy swimming and be safe in the water for their whole lives. Below are some local swimming lesson providers:
