PE and Sport

Physical Education is very important at Wimbledon Park. It promotes children’s strength, control and co-ordination, improving their physical competence and confidence as well as their ability to perform a wide range of activities.

We give all the children the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of physical activities. At least two hours of P.E. lessons are timetabled each week for every class.

In Years 1 - 6, PE is delivered by school sports specialists AM Sports Academy, who provide a curriculum programme, which offers each pupil 2 hours of quality sports per week. The curriculum sports offered are Netball, Football, Tri Golf, Basketball,  Dance, Tag Rugby, Hockey, Gymnastics, Athletics, Tennis, Cricket and Rounders. In addition, we run a swimming programme for pupils in Year 4. 

Each subject is taught for half a school term, with specific skills being demonstrated, explored and then implemented. Coach to child, child to coach and child to child feedback is regularly introduced within the lessons. Intra School Competitions are also included at the final stages of each subject, so pupils have the opportunity to compete against and challenge their knowledge, understanding and skills against their peers.

Children also have the opportunity to compete in sports events against other schools. This is achieved through organised friendly fixtures or competitions provided by Merton School Sports PartnershipIn the past year, almost 90% children in years 3/4/5/6 represented the school in over 50 separate competitive sport fixtures.

In addition to curriculum PE and competitive sports fixtures, we offer a wide range of before and after school sports clubs as well as lunchtime sports throughout the week.
