Sport At Walkington Primary School
Walkington Primary School promotes the participation and enjoyment of PE and sport for every child in school and works hard to provide high quality physical education (PE) lessons and extra-curricular activities.
As a school, we have been able to foster strong links with local clubs and teams. This has enabled us to increase the range of sports and expertise offered and positively promote the school. The increased participation has also been beneficial for the development of both pupils and staff.
In addition, through our commitment and desire to improve extra-curricular opportunities, we have been able to increase not only the level of participation in competitive sport, but also encourage those pupils who had not previously engaged in such activities to take an active role. As well as increasing pupil confidence levels, it has also enabled us to enjoy many successes in this field. Some of our high profile achievements in the last year have included becoming 2014 Humber Games Athletics Champions, winning the Jo Wheatley Memorial Shield for girls’ football and reaching finals in cricket, football, rounders, rugby and swimming.
Our school is a Sports Partnership member; this is a network of schools working collaboratively and which includes local primary schools and Beverley secondary schools. Through this we access a sporting calendar which includes local competitions, county competitions and continuing professional development for staff across the schools. http://www.thessp.org.uk/
