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 Lily Norman (year 6), Charlie Cox (year 5) and our Health Champion is Holly Miles (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.
We have been awarded the GOLD Sainsburys School Games Mark! We are very proud to have achieved this award.
Watton At Stone School is a member of the Youth Sport Trust which support schools in helping pupils to achieve their full sporting potential.
We have also been chosen to be a lead school for health and well-being this year!
