Physical Education and Sport

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award.

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.

Miss Lloyd is our KS2 subject  leader for PE and sport. She joined us at Wensley Fold after a career in physiotherapy and playing netball to county level.

Miss Sharples is our KS1 subject  leader for PE and sport. She joined us at Wensley Fold after a career in working in high schools and playing many sports in her spare time. Miss Sharples joined us after training with us via School Direct.

‘Healthy Body, Heart and Mind’

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.
