In April 2013 the Government announced that it would be providing additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding has been available to schools since the start of academic year 2013-2014. This initiative has been devised to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport across primary schools. Ideally, this will in turn promote healthy lifestyle choices and give children the opportunities to reach the performance levels they are capable of.

We recently asked pupils to complete a questionnaire about PE at Weston St Mary. The results showed that:
100% of pupils enjoy developing their PE skills during PE sessions.
100% of pupils feel they have a good understanding of what happens to their body when they exercise.
95% of pupils feel confident that they know how to eat healthily.
We are committed to providing our pupils with swimming provision which goes above and beyond what is offered by many other primary schools. From EYFS to Year 6, our children will experience at least 9 hours of pool time per year, with weekly lessons from September to the end of October, and then from April to the end of the academic year. Our lessons take place at our sister school, Whaplode C of E Primary school. We believe that these lessons are crucial to keeping our children safe, particularly due to the large amounts of drains and ditches in our local area.
Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.
