Funding at Watton at Stone Primary and Nursery School

The government is providing PE & sport funding for primary schools. This money aims to help schools improve;

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport 

Here at Watton we intend to use the funding to further up skill our teachers, and provide them with the resources to deliver sustainable high quality PE lessons. It is important to us to support not only our less active pupils, but also those who are gifted and talented. This might be by directing them to local clubs with whom we have links or by organising for a quality assured coach to come in and run a workshop for those children.

We will also use the funding to give all our pupils opportunities to try as many different sports as possible, in both competitive and non-competitive environments. We will encourage all pupils to participate in extra-curricular sport by providing a wide range of clubs, both at lunchtimes and after school.

We wish to extend our pupils by offering them the chance to compete for the school at various sporting competitions. Providing transport for some of these competitions, means we can enter more teams and give more children this opportunity. 

As a school we will receive approximately £17,470 for the 2023/24 academic year.
