Our aim for PE at Woodlands

We aim for all pupils leaving Woodlands Primary School to be 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.

All children in KS1 and KS2 are provided with 2 hours of curriculum PE time a week, plus opportunities to engage in extra-curricular PE and sport. In addition to this, we encourage active playtimes and active lunchtimes to ensure every child is getting their recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.


2016-2017 was a particularly successful year for us as we won a gold Sports Mark, recognising our achievements in sport.

Schools Games Mark

2017-2018 has proved another successful year for Woodlands. We have achieved the GOLD mark for the second year running. Thank you to all the staff and children who have made this possible.

What is Sports Premium Funding?

Sports Premium Funding is a Government initiative that aims to enhance and improve the provision of PE and to increase the activity levels of children in primary schools.

The amount of funding each school is allocated depends on the number of children in the school: schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil (in Years 1 to 6).

How did we use the Primary Sports Premium Funding in 2017-18?

For the academic year 2017/18, Woodlands Primary School received £21,580 of sports premium funding. This funding allowed us to enhance and increase our sports provision in the school. For example:

  • Nine teachers had CPD in cricket, athletics and tennis. 
  • The number of extra-curricular sports clubs increased by 100%, allowing more children to take part in a wider range of sports.
  • PE and lunchtime equipment was updated and renewed.
  • MMS had CPD training for lunch time activities. 
  • Designated sports co-ordinators had time to review, plan and assess for PE.
  • Children travelled to and competed in 11 different Level 2 sports competitions.
  • Sports co-ordinators attended PE conferences to develop links and share expertise.
  • School funded places for children to attend extra-curricular activities. 
  • Balanceability programme for 6 weeks. 

Please see the impact evaluation at the bottom of this page for more information on how we spent the money and the effect it had on sport at Woodlands.


How will we use the Primary Sports Premium Funding in 2018-19?

For the academic year 2018/19, Woodlands Primary School will receive £21,580 of Sports Premium Funding. Our action plan for how we will spend the money can be found at the bottom of this page. Our plan focuses on improving the following five areas:

  • To maintain and increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • To raise the profile of PE and sport across the school
  • To increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Fun Run 

On Wednesday 17th October 30 children across KS1 and KS2 took part in a Fun Run at Dunorlan Park. They ran a route around the park, competing against schools from the Tonbridge and West Kent Schools Partnership. They had a great morning and one pupil finished 3rd receiving a medal from Tonbridge Athletics Club. We were very proud of all the children that took part. 


Tonbridge Mini Basketball Competition 

Children from Years 5 and 6 took part in a mini basketball competition run by the Sports partnership on Tuesday 13th November. They competed against 9 other schools in Tonbridge and finished 4th overall. A great display of team work to support the spirit of the games values. A huge well done to all the schools that took part. 



ALT Kent Junior Schools' Cross Country Championships

On Saturday 17th November 9 children took part in the event at the Kent County Show Ground in Detling. Over an undulating course, the pupils battled it out in races with over 200 runners competing.

Colour Dash 

On Friday 20th April, 30 children took part in the Colour Dash event at Dunorlan Park, Tunbridge Wells. It really was one of the highlights so far this year, with over 300 children taking part - the park was filled with so much colour and so many smiles.


  • World Cup football tournament

Sports Day 2018

Blue sky, sunshine and sun cream made for the perfect sports day. The children were beyond excited to be taking part in our greatest event of the year! They worked their way around a  carousel of activities, shooting targets, bowling balls and jumping great distances, followed by class races to finish the morning. We had an overwhelming amount of support from families and friends, not forgetting our PTA who were on hand selling much needed water and ice pops!
