At Whitmore Park Primary School pupils are given fantastic opportunities to experience a wide variety of sports and activities in PE and are given opportunities to participate further in competitive and non-competitive sports outside of the national curriculum.

As a school we believe a high-quality physical education curriculum that we offer allows pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.

Opportunities to participate in sport and other activities help to build character and to embed values such as fairness, teamwork and respect. Pupils of all years will have the chance to participate in competitive and non-competitive sports throughout their time at Whitmore Park Primary School. We believe that these opportunities will help pupils kick start lifelong participation in sport.

School Games Mark

Whitmore Park Primary School has been awarded the School Games Silver Mark. We are honoured to receive this as it recognises the amount of hard work pupils and members of staff put in to create an environment where high quality PE and sport provisions are available.

As a school we are continuing to collect Sainsbury’s Vouchers which we can use to purchase new equipment to use in PE.

In KS1 pupils will develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and access a broad range of opportunities to improve their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.

Pupils work towards mastering basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, and begin to apply these into a range of activities including participating in team games and developing simple tactics for attacking and defending.


Pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways. Pupils will develop an understanding of how to improve in different activities and sports and learn how to use tactics to improve their performance.

KS2 pupils will continue to develop basic skills learnt in gymnastics in KS1, but will begin to understand how to develop complex routines using these skills.
