Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. The Primary National Curriculum Framework 2014
At Windermere, pupils should experience a broad range of physical activities, including competitive sport. We aim to introduce pupils to games and sports beyond the traditional primary games, so that every child has the opportunity to discover sports which they enjoy and at which they might excel.
For full details of our sporting activities, including our teams and competitors, see the Sports page.
PE includes not only games, but adventurous activities, gymnastics and dance as well. The PE curriculum includes a broad range of activities, developing skills and encouraging every child to enjoy physical activity in school. Some teaching is carried out by specialist PE coaches. Our free after school clubs extend the PE opportunities we offer pupils, who are encouraged to participate in competitive events in many different sports. Pupils in KS2 learn to swim at a local swimming pool (Westminster Lodge). Sports and activities on offer include among others: netball, football, tag rugby, badminton, tennis, gymnastics, lacrosse, dance, kwik-cricket, rounders and athletics. The school has a mapped and marked orienteering course and holds a whole school cross-country event every autumn, as well as sports days and inter-house competitions.
