At Wendell Park, we aim to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport.
Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We support pupils in developing the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes.
We listen to the wants and needs of our pupils and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs including workshops and lunchtime special activity clubs with our PE coach.
The delivery of physical education at Wendell Park ensures that all children have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capability to be successful in sporting challenges and to lead an active lifestyle at secondary school and beyond.
In previous years, pupils have had the opportunity to participate in a range of activities and competitions including:
- Tag Rugby
- SportsHall Athletics
- District Athletics
- Multi-Sports Team (Cricket, Rounders, Football)
- Mayor's Cup Football Teams (KS2)
- SEND & Inclusive Sports including the Panathon
- Cricket Club
- Annual Class Dance-Offs
COVID-19 restrictions mean that many of the previously run events have not been possible in 2020/2021. As soon as restrictions are lifted, Wendell Park will recommence participation in competitions and other activities.

Wendell Park Primary School provides children with swimming lessons in Key Stage 2. Children attend lessons at the Janet Adegoke Swimming Pool next door to Phoenix Academy. Year 5 pupils attend lessons in the Autumn term; Years 3 and 4 attend lessons in the Spring term and Summer 1 and Year 6 attend lesson in Summer 2.
The National Curriculum states:
Swimming and water safety
All schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.
In particular, pupils should be taught to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
