Sports Premium Funding
At Welton, in PE, the children are provided well-structured lessons in dance, gymnastics, athletics and games taught by teachers and PE experts. Throughout the year the children have the opportunity to experience these different aspects of the PE curriculum, build skills and knowledge about the PE curriculum area and find out which parts of physical education they enjoy. Throughout the year children are given the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sporting competitions with other schools in the local area. These competitions give the children a sense of pride as they represent their school and can show their true potential in a sporting activity.

Physical education at Welton allows children to work alone and in teams while evaluating their own and other’s performance in a respectful manner to help every child improve. Alongside physical skills childrenat our school develop positive attitudes with regards to the idea of fair play and respect for others which are transferrable when working in other areas of the curriculum.Sport and Physical Activity have played a huge part in our successes this year. We have utilised our Sports Premium funds to raise standards, participation and enjoyment levels in sport, physical activity and health for ALL pupils.
