Bishop's Waltham Junior School

Enjoy, Learn & Achieve Together

At Bishop’s Waltham Junior School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority.

Sports Premium

The Department for Education (DfE) have recently updated their website regarding the PE and Sports Premium for academic year 2017/18.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This should work out at approx £18,500 for Bishop's Waltham Junior School.

Sports Premium Funding 

At BWJS the sports premium funding will be used to:

  • Develop and add to the PE/Sport activities that the school already offers
  • Make improvements to sporting provision/resources/teaching that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

This will be achieved by:

  1. Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside the teachers to deliver specialist PE units
  2. Providing existing staff with appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  3. Running a full programme of sporting competitions and activities; involving other schools
  4. Introducing new sports/activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport
  5. Providing financial support for families/including least active children to enhance sport participation.

Competitive Sports at BWJS

Bishop’s Waltham Junior School is part of the South Eastleigh and Winchester Sports Partnership and as a result competed in a wide range of Level 2B sports competitions.

School Sports Competition Calendar 2017-18

If as a school we are victorious in any of the pyramid sports competitions, then we would represent the Sports Partnership at the County LEVEL 3 Competitions (Hampshire Games - June 2018).

In order to prepare for the sporting competitions (and select winning teams) the Swanmore Pyramid of Schools organises and leads a number of sporting events across the year. The winning teams then represent the pyramid at the partnership events. This provides each school with an element of competitive sport.
