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.
Schools Games Mark
2022-2023 proved another successful year for Woodlands. We achieved the GOLD mark once again. 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 2022-23?
For the academic year 2022/23, Woodlands Primary School received £21,484 of Sports Premium Funding. Our action plan for how we spent the money can be found at the bottom of this page with our review. 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
- To offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities for all pupils
- To increase participation in competitive sport.
