Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills, and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our PE curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in sport and other physically-demanding activities. We aim to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of areas. A varied curriculum is in place to support this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, games, swimming and water safety and outdoor adventure activities. Children at Wolviston engage in a minimum of two x 1-hour PE lessons each week which are delivered alongside qualified coaches. Our After School Club also provides children with additional opportunities to develop and enhance their physical and team building skills.
We ensure children have the opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
As part of our links with Stockton Schools Sport Partnership, all children are given the opportunity to represent the school at competitions and festivals. In recent years, all classes in the school have attended multi-sport festivals and a number of children in Key Stage 2 have competed in Stockton and Tees Valley finals both individually and as part of a team.
