‘Happy, Friendly, Incredible, Safe’



To provide all children with the opportunity to develop fundamental movement skills through a variety of sports and physical activities.


By taking part in PE and school sport, we aim for our children to develop an enthusiasm for being active and healthy. We will teach the children the basic skills needed to throw, catch and take part in simple ball games whilst promoting the need for them to be physically active in order to be fit, strong and healthy. We aim to offer a wide range of sports so that all children can discover a sport or activity that they will enjoy and to work with local clubs to provide opportunities for children to continue developing in a local club setting.



We are delighted that Holt Farm Infant School is being recognised for the outstanding work we do in PE.

  • We have been awarded “School of the Year” in Rochford & Castle Point

  • We have been awarded the Silver Quality Mark for the Youth Sport Trust for the second time.

  • We have gained the Key Stage 1 award from Active Essex

  • We have been successful in our bid for funding to run a 6-week program of PE with our Reception children in the New Year.


We spend a lot of time developing the fundamental skills of movement and fitness in our PE lessons and all our teachers work along-side a PE specialist to ensure high-quality teaching. In addition, we link with local sports clubs and try to offer introductions to as many different sports as we can. This means our children are getting the very best introduction to physical activity. Thank you to Mrs. Robinson for her outstanding commitment to PE in our school which has led to all this success.



Our PE Specialist, Sarah Robinson works with Classteachers to improve teaching and learning in physical education. Sarah has a background in Sports Science and athletics and as well as being a primary teacher she has also been a personal trainer
