Curriculum Intent

At the Wellington Lions Primary Academy, we recognise the impact PE and sport has on our pupil’s physical, social and emotional wellbeing, and are pleased to participate in so much sport, both within curriculum time and also at extra-curricular events. Within the curriculum, children are given a minimum of 2 hours of quality PE teaching each week. In addition to this, many sports clubs across both Key Stages are offered, such as hockey, tag rugby, football, netball, climbing and dance, some of which are run by high quality professional practitioners and club leaders that visit our school. Some of the fantastic external links we have to support our physical activity engagement program include Chelsea Football , Dance Days and Rippa Rugby.

We continually invest in our PE department, regularly updating equipment as well as investing in a brand new, high quality PE planning scheme called The PE Hub. This has enabled staff to feel confident in their teaching and assessing of PE and Sports, whilst captivating pupils in exciting and engaging lessons in a variety of sports including football, hockey, tennis, athletics, gymnastics, tag rugby, badminton and more.

At Wellington Lions our ethos for SPORT is:

Sociable Perseverance Opportunity Resilience Teamwork

Wellington Lions believes in living active, healthy lifestyles and have recently completed the Bronze Healthy Schools Award. In order to maximise our opportunities to be active throughout the day, we annually engage our Year 6 students in the local Playground Leaders scheme, who take on responsibilities such as looking after equipment, running activities on break times for the school.

Wellington Lions maintain strong links with their Academy Secondary School; The Wellington Academy. We attend meetings every year to talk about what events in sport they can host such as our whole school sports day. It is a great opportunity for the children to connect with the secondary school and make use of their facilities. In addition to this, staff from Wellington Lions have attended rock climbing training so that the Wellington Lions pupils can utilise the new state of the art climbing wall in The Wellington Academies sport centre.

Our school believes in the values of community, and with this in mind, we participate in many sporting events with our local cluster of primary schools and other local community organisations, including Football, tag rugby, swimming, netball, hockey, orienteering, badminton, dance and gymnastics tournaments. We also have strong links with our local sports and leisure centre, who teach groups of our children to swim in their pool each year.

At the Wellington Lions Primary Academy, when it comes to sports, we have big ambitions and hope to achieve many more successes in the future.
