Our Vision


'Here at Trinity we want to give children the best start we possibly can in their academic, social and physical development.'  


We aim to develop each child at their own pace with child centred learning to progress their Physical Literacy Skills based on proven research.  Reading and writing is broken down into simple stages to help mastery.  Physical Literacy is the same, there are many stages designed to support children in becoming fluid and confident movers.  Our school grounds and play space are designed to help support inquisitively, activity and self-discovery.  We aim to build on this ethos within their formal Physical Education lessons. 

PE lessons will be based on a Physical Literacy approach helping each child to develop their Movement, Balance and Object control as well as their confidence through a range of activities at their own pace. .


Through educational research we are clear that physical activity and academic progression goes hand in hand.  We will encourage children to be active and make healthy choices as part of their daily lives and will endeavour to help them find enjoyment from being active through the activities we provide as well as role-modelling with a vision of making them life-long participants in an active lifestyle.


Trinity school puts physical activity at the heart of learning and believes that the physical education and activity has a significant impact on the wellbeing of each child. After a disrupted year with COVID 19, we have put physical education as a key focus and not only employed a second specialist PE teacher, but have also invested in a program that is run by Exeter City Football club to work alongside the teachers to deliver high quality PE sessions. 



Meet the PE Team


Sarah Newell - PE co-ordinator

I have recently taken on the role of the PE co-ordinator and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Children being active is a vital part of their well-being and education here at Trinity.  As well as Andy Bayliss, we are also very fortunate to have Exeter City Football Club and Sporty Stars to provide us with excellent sports coaches to support teachers in delivering high quality PE lessons. 

Mr Bayliss - Sports coach

I have provided P.E support to the children and staff at Trinity School since December 2017. Working with the children from the beginning of their school years is enabling us to teach them the Fundamentals of movement and ball skills and establish the foundations for a wide range of sporting and activity based interests. I am a sporting 'all-rounder' and was trained as a P.E teacher at University and although I did not take this path for the early part of my career I am now a Level 2 cricket coach, Level 1 rugby and tennis and a full time sports and P.E coach.
