There are many opportunities for engagement in a wide range of sports at Welton St. Mary’s. As part of the PE curriculum children take part in games, multiskills, swimming, gymnastics, dance and outdoor adventurous activities. These are led by both class teachers and our PE provider Premier Education. 

Premier Education also provide us with PE WOW days that enable us to try new and inclusive sports such as archery, goal ball and new age kurling.

There are also many extra-curricular activities available including cross country, football, netball and golf.

Sports in school


Competitions September 2022 to July 2023

Inter-School’s Archery Competition by Isla-Mae and Phoebe

On Wednesday 15th November, Year Three took part in an archery competition. The competition took place in the school hall and was organised by Mr. Heap from Premier Sports. Other schools across Lincoln will also be visited by Premier Sports and take part in the competition. On the day, we began by learning how to hold the bow and arrow accurately. We then took turns to have a go at aiming our arrows at a target. This was great fun! After we had developed our skills, we then had three chances to hit the target, with our scores being added together to form a total. Once every school involved has competed in the competition, we will get to hear where we have been placed. All in all, we had a fantastic morning and can’t wait to hear the results!




Competitions September 2022 to July 2023

The children thoroughly enjoyed the events and many of the teams had high finishes and at least one team out of the ones entered received a medal.

Year 5/6 Netball Tournament –  Tuesday 20th July. 6 teams took part in a Netball tournament hosted at our school. We competed against 2 teams from Ellison Boulters and 2 teams from Dunholme. Every match was played in great spirits and the children thoroughly enjoyed the rapidness of the games. Each school played really well and the children got more confident as the matches progressed.  It was great to see so many children actively engaged in competitive sport and playing against their peers. Thank you to William Farr who provided us with 2 umpires for the matches. 

We hope to compete in the Autumn term again and build on these successes and local links. 

Other competitive matches This year we have also seen our Football and Netball teams undertake a few friendly matches with our local schools. On Tuesday 11th October we played against Dunholme winning the match and then on Tuesday 18th October our second team played them again and beat them. On Tuesday 2nd May we played against Ellison Boulters and lost the match then we went again on Monday 15th May and lost again. The boys and girls showed great sportsmanship within both of the matches. On Monday 20th March we hosted two matches with Dunholme for Netball. Both teams played really well and it was a tight win against one team and a tight loss against the other. Both matches were played in great spirit and we have arranged more matches with them in term 6. We have also organised a match with Ellison Boulters in term 6 and we are hoping to organise a mini tournament at our local secondary school.

Throughout term 4 we competed every week with 25 other schools in Lincolnshire schools cross country competition.  As a school we hosted and organised 2 events at our local University. Each week 6 boys and girls from Year 5 and 6 competed. On Thursday 27th April we took 24 children from years 3-6 to compete in a ‘fun’ cross country event. In liaison with Ellison Boulters school we are planning some cricket and rounders fun matches in term 6. Hopefully, our field will be ready to host these.
