At Bishop’s Waltham Junior School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority.
All children and young people should live healthy active lives. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. Children with special educational needs and disabilities should take part in 20 minutes of daily activity.
Schools have a key role to play in achieving this aim. This is particularly true of primary schools where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity are embedded. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.
Schools should use the PE and sport premium funding to help achieve these aims.
They should use it to make additional and sustainable improvements to the PE, sport and physical activity they provide, such as:
Schools should prioritise PE and sport premium spending to improve in the following 5 key areas:

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.
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 2024).
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.
