At Wellow School Physical Education and Sport play an important part in school life, both through the curriculum and through our extensive range of extra-curricular clubs, tournaments and inter house competitions.
Physical Education starts as soon as children start in Year R where they are taught the core skills of agility, balance and coordination. We ensure all children are provided with a broad and balanced physical education curriculum, where there is progression of skills throughout the year groups. Emphasis is placed on building each child’s confidence, competence, character and creativity in each area of the physical education curriculum. As a result the children enjoy the benefits of team play and exercise, contributing to a healthy lifestyle.
Tournaments and matches
We have a full competition programme running throughout the year which include intra school competitions (level 1) and inter school competitions (level 2 and 3).
We offer a wide variety of sports clubs which are run at lunchtime and after school. We utilise the expertise of a qualified level 2 Multi-Skills Development in Sport coach and a gymnastics coach on the staff, to enhance the provision of our sports clubs. We also have links with sports clubs in the community which provides children with the means to further their skills and interests and to offer a higher level of competition.
The sporting year culminates with our annual sports day where the children can showcase their talents over a range of track and field events throughout the day.
