Physical Education and Sport

‘Healthy Body, Heart and Mind’

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that
the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

At Wensley Fold we aim to develop healthy bodies, hearts and minds. The staff and pupils are committed to our school motto  ‘Make Each Day Count’ and the school values which are embedded throughout PE and Sport in school. PE and Sport in school allows us to promote and develop teamwork, strong ethics, continual enhancement, inclusion and inspiring potential. We are very lucky to benefit from fantastic sports facilities including a sports hall, dance studio and a large field.   The children have access to a wide range of school sports clubs and competitions both in and out of school. We aim to develop all children’s individual talents and encourage ‘Sport for All’.  We also endeavour to teach the children about the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle.

Sporting Competitions

Four children from Year 6 took part in the recent Badminton competition. It was the first time we had entered the competition and the children really enjoyed it.

Our KS2 cross country team took part in the annual cross country competition at Witton Country Park. A great effort from the whole team against other schools in the Borough. Well done!

Our Boccia team took part in the recent competition at St Bedes High School. They worked as a team with positivity and enthusiasm, achieving some of their highest scores! Great effort!

The boys football team displayed some fantastic skills in the latest qualifiers for the Jubilee Shield. Some fantastic goals scored and leadership from the captain, Haris Alam
