We follow this fully inclusive, skills-based curriculum to build confidence and engagement in PE for ALL pupils. Our partnership with Carre's Grammar Outreach gives us the opportunity to have an 'Active Schools Co-ordinator' in school to deliver high quality P.E. lessons and provide on-going staff training. All pupils have access to a minimum of 2 hours curriculum time of high quality P.E. each week. 

Sport and School Games

We provide and encourage a positive attitude towards making healthy lifestyle choices and staying active and by following the School Games Gold criteria we are able to develop a life-long interest in physical activity and sport in our pupils. We constantly maintain a high profile of physical activity in all aspects of school life and provide the following opportunities for our children:

* Developing leadership skills from EYFS to Year 6 by providing opportunities for children to build on leadership skills throughout their time at Winthorpe Primary School. 

Set up and run playground activities at play times and lunch times to encourage physical activity and to further develop leadership skills of playground leaders.

* Provide opportunities for physical activity across the curriculum for example, active Maths and active English sessions for all children on a regular basis. 

* Provide further opportunities to take part in extra-curricular clubs and competitions and events. All children are given opportunities to represent Winthorpe Primary School at 'Friday Festival' events and competitions organised and ran by Carre's Grammar School Outreach. This provides a wide range of sports and activities for children to take part in, at differing levels of competition. 

Participation in extra-curricular activities and school competitions is tracked to ensure all children are provided with opportunities and any 'inactive' children are identified and targeted for intervention. 

* All children are provided with opportunities to participate in Level 1, 2 and 3 competitions throughout the year:

Level 1 - Personal Challenges - All children take part in a weekly mile and take pride in beating previous times each week. All successes and achievements are celebrated and the children are excited and proud of their progress. 

Level 2 - Intra-School Competitions - All children take part in a competition within their class at the end of every unit in termly PE lessons. Children compete in their colour houses and opportunities are also provided to develop umpiring and officiating skills. 

Level 3 - Inter-School Competitions - All children are provided with opportunities to take part in sporting competition against other schools in a wide variety of sports.
