PE and Sport
At Wolverley Sebright, we know that PE and Sport is an integral part of our school curriculum. Physical Education and the promotion of Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in physically- demanding activities and helps all our pupils to become confident in a way which supports their fitness and health.
We provide outstanding Physical Education through high quality teaching and an exceptional curriculum. Our pupils are encouraged to achieve their personal best at all times and are challenged to succeed and excel in Physical Education and school sport.
All our pupils take part in at least 30 minutes of daily physical activity through PE lessons, lunchtimes and extra-curricular activities.
We also believe that our pupils should have the opportunity to attend and compete in festival or competition to learn new skills and gain experience. Our pupils also compete in the inter- house competitions to build and develop our Sports Values which include: determination, fairness, honesty, team work and respect.
At Wolverley we give all of our pupils the opportunity to participate in and enjoy physical activity and competitive sport.
We offer a range of after school clubs led by different members of staff. Presently we have over 75% of KS2 pupils attending after school sports/physical activity clubs.
After introducing bell-boating into our KS2 curriculum we are continuing with this activity this year led by 2 members of staff who have been trained by A train, a former Olympic athlete. For the past 3 years we have entered teams into the local Stourport Regatta and celebrated winning the event in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
In addition we will have cricket coaching taking place during this Autumn term. Our KS2 pupils will be coached each week by a Schools Cricket Development Coach from Worcestershire Cricket.
Harriers will be in school during November and December to deliver Health kick sessions to yr6 pupils and Fun sessions to yr3 pupils.
Early in the Spring term there will be a tennis taster session for all year groups led by a coach from 'We Do Tennis'. This will also provide opportunities to continue with tennis at the local club.
Bikeability will take place for Year 5 and 6 during November, information will be sent out nearer the time
We have been awarded the School Games Mark for the past 4 years. Building on our success we are aiming to achieve our 3rd gold award this year.
School Games mark is a government led awards scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into their community.
Schools are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels as part of their application to achieve the awards.
This year we are continuing to use Franche swimming pool each week, however the focus this term is for KS2 pupils to attend swimming lessons. We hope that over the term our percentage of pupils who achieve the national requirements for swimming will increase.
The requirements to be achieved by the end of KS2 are as follows:
Swims competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
Uses a range of strokes effectively
Performs safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Lunchtime break is a very active time for a lot of pupils. During this time KS2 have the opportunity to participate in football training/matches. This is coached by staff but pupils are encouraged to take on a leadership role by supporting staff and in so doing develop their own coaching skills
