Established in 2018, our Trinity Education Department (previously SSP) works within Primary Schools to develop opportunities in Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity.
Our Education Department has developed significantly over the last four years, Trinity Education team expanding to a full-time PE Specialist model, with three PE Specialists, an Education Lead, and Head of Education delivering in schools across the Wakefield district and beyond.
We have developed our offer to schools, which now consists of our internal partners at Wakefield Trinity Rugby League Department, and our external partners, the Leeds United Primary Stars Department. This now allows us to deliver a full wrap-around PE and Sport Provision. Our delivery model is set up with the focus being Teacher CPD, we aim to create a legacy in the schools we work in, allowing all class teachers to be comfortable delivering PE and Sport to a very high standard. We have designed, developed and implemented our very own Primary PE Curriculum which is used throughout the schools we work in.
Our PE Curriculum comes with all resources needed, such as learning objectives, assessment criteria, and all sits on its own website to allow easy access for the schools.
Specialist Rugby League coaches from our Wakefield Trinity Rugby League Department also deliver specific Rugby League sessions to children in KS2, developing their understanding of the game, and hopefully a love of Rugby League and Wakefield Trinity.
In early 2021, we were able to expand the Education department further with the introduction of Alternative Provision. Our Trinity Alternative Provision seeks to nurture relationships with disengaged young people, build trust and confidence within them, develop their character and personal values, with the hope of impacting their academic journey through inspiration and motivation to achieve.
Trinity Alternative Provision is an early ‘Pre-Intervention’ programme where we try to help every young person thrive and flourish by identifying the cause of their problems and introducing the young person to coping mechanisms to deal with the problems. We aim to use sport, and the Wakefield Trinity Core Values to develop their skillset and mindset. Our delivery is split into two sections, one hour classroom based, and one hour practical based, with our delivery being none sport specific.
