PE and Sport
Sport plays a very important part in the life of Holy Family School.
Through our activities in physical education, we aim to improve the children's physical health, agility, strength, co-ordination, poise, fitness, confidence and social interaction. PE lessons, comprise movement/drama, dance, gymnastics, invasion games, net and wall games, striking and fielding games, outdoor adventurous activities and athletics.
We are fortunate to have a qualified sports coach, Mr A. Lawrence, who takes responsibility for high quality lessons to fulfill the curriculum requirements along with the procurement of new equipment.
School Sports Partnership
Holy Family invests a portion of the Primary PE and Sports funding in working in partnership and collaboration with The Deanes through the Castle Point and Rochford School Sports Partnership to access a variety of services to benefit students and staff of the school. This allows us to be part of an infrastructure of 50 schools benefiting from guidance and development around high quality physical education, increasing the range and breadth of 'School Sport' opportunities and educating young people regarding healthy and active lifestyles.
