PE Provision
'I had the pleasure recently of working in partnership with Morton Trentside Primary School to provide support for the development of Physical Education provision. It was my first visit to the School and I was immediately impressed by the warm welcome I received from the children and staff, the vibrant and colourful displays and the hive of activity that was taking place across the school and out onto the playground where the Young Ambassadors were busily working on developing their leadership and team-building skills through PE and Sport. Miss Evans, the PE Co-ordinator was extremely well organised and spoke with a passion and vision for the development of her subject across the school. We had an excellent whole-staff training session on developing high quality PE and I enjoyed very much working with all the staff who displayed passion, enthusiasm and professionalism, and a real desire to make a difference through PE for their children. I enjoyed the classroom based activity and then we had a practical session in the hall, where once again, all staff made the evening a great success by taking part to the full. I don't normally single anyone out, but I would like to make a special mention and thank you to Mrs Bell, for the excellent demonstrations she provided. I look forward to working with you all again. Thank you. Stuart Allison, Senior Education Adviser, Allison Consultancy.'

The teaching of P.E. in Morton Trentside Primary School provides special learning opportunities for our pupils. Pupils learn and develop different skills not only through physical activity but also through the way they learn to co-operate and interact with their peers. Learning through P.E. helps to enhance pupil’s skills, fitness and above all confidence so making a valuable contribution to their overall education. It is the aim of Morton Trentside to provide comprehensive coverage of the National Curriculum for P.E. and to offer a variety of extra-curricular activities via the extended curriculum.
