What Sport Means To Us

Welford embraces the holistic values of all sport. Physical skills are developed and celebrated as well as the drive, enthusiasm and self-believing mental attributes it generates. Skills of athleticism, competitive prowess, empathy, fairness, determination and teamwork within the margins of good health and achievement are of paramount importance to add to the growth mindset of all of the children and the whole school.
Welford offers specialist sports coaches and teachers to deliver consistently high quality PE lessons, accompanied by a variety of sporting clubs to inspire individuals and unite tremendous teams!
Welford has an interactive sports board, in the KS2 corridor by the main door, up to date with all match dates, results and notices. Sports person of the week is displayed along with all children’s sporting achievements. Our celebratory sports board is a key part in visually displaying the values Welford on Avon Primary School acquires from sport. Please feel free to have a look or contribute any action shots!
