Here at Stowting, we believe that physical education provides a vital and unique contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development. We offer a strong commitment to high quality PE and Sport. We aim to foster a genuine love of sport for all children through our wide and varied list of sports that we offer both in school, and at after school clubs. Children are taught about the positive benefits that sport has on their mind and body and that exercise is an essential part of their daily lives in order to maintain a healthy body. We look for both competitive and non-competative opportunities for pupils to actively engage in.

In addition to a minimum of 2 hours of PE lessons a week, we are wholly committed to achieving the Governments ambition for all children to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day - 30 minutes a day at school and the additional 30 minutes to be achieved outside of school through families.
We therefore provide:
Daily lunchtime clubs 12.20pm - 1.00pm
Space to run and climb with all year round access to our large school field & apparatus (Wellies are compulsory)
Large range of sports equipment to encourage physical exertion: such as balls and skipping ropes.
The Government have committed to funding schools to support the provision of PE/Sport. Each school will receive £16,000 plus an additional £10 per pupil each year.
At Stowting this will mean around £16,900 a year.
To gain best value and to maximise the impact for our children we use the money to:
