Stranton School is proud to be the lead School in The Collective Cluster.
The Collective Cluster is a fundamental part of Eden Academy Trust; working in partnership with nine local primary schools to help improve and develop Physical Education and School Sport. Giving pupils from EYFS to Year 6 the opportunity to take part in FUN and exciting activities, and helping children to develop a lifelong love of sport and an active lifestyle.
We are passionate about high quality Physical Education (PE) and have a team of skilled coaching professionals with many years of coaching experience, who work with over 1,100 pupils and 30 school staff each week. We work with school staff and education professionals at all levels, to equip staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver excellent lessons that are fun and engaging for all.
Throughout the academic year, we proudly host 23 Sporting Festivals, Tournaments and Competitions for our cluster schools. Sports events are broken down in to four groups:
Group 1 = Compete (most competitive pupils)
Group 2 = Participate (B/C team pupils)
Group 3 = Develop (haven't represented the school before)
Group 4 = Engage (least engaged pupils).
This ensures that all children, no matter their ability level, have the opportunity to take part in sporting events, providing them with a positive experience in school sport.

What is the PE and sport funding?
The Department for Education’s vision for the PE and sport funding is: ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective: to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the PE and sport funding.
