P.E. & School Sport

  

Our P.E. and Sport Vision

At Watton School we place a high value on PE and sport to help our pupils achieve their full potential, from inspiring the more tentative to actively participate in PE and clubs, to encouraging competitive sports for the more able.

We promote a long term healthy lifestyle through a broad and balanced curriculum with an aim to raise enjoyment, attainment and make physical activity a staple part of the pupils daily routine.

Our PE and sport aspires to build self esteem, teamwork, leadership skills and a desire to be the best that they can be.

Young Ambassadors & Sports Crew

We have two Young Sports Ambassadors and one Health Champion at the school. These children attend training sessions once a term. Their jobs are to help the PE Coordinators run clubs & school competitions, and to act as sports reporters for competitions & festivals that we attend. They also help the PE Coordinators to promote a healthy lifestyle to the school.

Our Ambassadors are Tom Rutter (year 6), Lily Norman (year 5), and our Health Champion is Ross Green (year 6).

Some children from years 5 and 6 have been selected to be our Sports Crew. They help the Ambassadors and PE Coordinators to run clubs, and help the MSAs & play-leaders outside at lunchtimes. These children have received extensive training in leadership and peer mediation from the local School Sports Partnership.

We have also started to allow KS2 children to organise, plan and run their own lunchtime clubs for the younger children in the school to take part in.

Athlete Visit

In June 2017 we had a visit from a Paralympic Judo athlete called Ian Rose.

He did a whole school assembly about Growth Mindset and the children and staff found it inspirational.

He then did a workshop for the year 6 pupils on stress and anger management.

Full report and photos

We have had two follow up visits from Ian this term, which involved him running workshops for all of KS2 on stress management.
