Through sport we aim for children to flourish in order to help them experience life in all its fullness.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
– Romans 12:1
What if there had been no colour barrier in Sports?
At Wharton Primary, we ensure that our children have access to PE lessons each week, throughout the year. We aim to provide enjoyable activities that promote the development of skills and coordination. Children have the opportunity to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, and in developing fundamental skills, which can be applied when engaging in competitive activities.
The curriculum we provide encourages children to develop competences to excel in a broad range of physical activities across dance, gymnastics and games. Within P.E. we promote broader qualities that develop our children’s ability to celebrate achievements, play fairly, solve problems individually and in teams, listen carefully to others and approach P.E. and sport in school with a positive attitude. This will in turn help our children to develop their confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of sport.
All pupils also have the opportunity to swim during KS2. These sessions allow children to develop an understanding of water safety and the opportunity to develop their range of swimming strokes.
Children also get the opportunity to complete Bikeability training with Cycle Experience, a national bike awareness-cycling program that trains the children in riding safely on the road and provides them with an understanding of basic first aid.
Wharton has received additional funding to enrich our sport provision this academic year from the government. We have used this funding to join the Vale Royal sports Partnership. This enables our children to participate in sports locally with other schools, providing them with opportunities to participate in and progress in National competitions.
Health and Safety information:
Children must remove watches and earrings during PE and swimming lessons to prevent them from causing injury. Ear studs must be removed, or covered with medical tape if the piercings are new. The parent/carer must cover the new piercings before their child arrives at school.
Also, it is essential that long hair, shoulder length or longer, should be tied back.
