At Wavertree CE School, we foster a spirit of belonging to part of a team, be that a class, a house team, or the entire school body. The fact we are a small school creates an atmosphere of fellowship, as children from different classes know each other and forge relationships during our after school clubs, and sports competitions.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in extra-curricular sports events, which happen throughout the academic year, and bonds are formed as children compete together. Win or lose, the sporting values we uphold are at the core of all we do. We congratulate opponents when they win, and we console those who lose.
In PE lessons, children develop their sense of belonging as they progress through the school, and the level of challenge they experience is related to their ability rather than their age range. Those who require more challenge are just as well catered for as those who need extra input to help them achieve their potential. Pupils are given opportunities in PE lessons to encourage their team mates, and sometimes offer coaching, to help them meet the challenge of each task. We believe this helps increase the sense of unity and togetherness that we aspire to at Wavertree CE School.
