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 Chanelle Harris (year 6), Tom Rutter (year 5), and Lily Norman (Year 4) and our Health Champion is Jake Lee (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.
Link with Heath Mount School
In the past couple of years we have been developing a sports link with Heath Mount Independent School. This year we have planned various competitions.
Autumn Term - Football
SpringTerm - Rugby
Summer Term - Cricket
This term 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.
Thank you to all who managed to attend and support our Sports (half) Day! We braved the weather and managed to finish the races in the morning before the rain unfortunately prevented the afternoon events from happening. The children had a great morning despite the weather and we hope you all enjoyed it as well.
The winners for 2017 were....
