Sports Premium GRANT
Children at Woodlands are enthusiastic about PE and take part in PE lessons twice a week. Within these lessons, children develop their skills in a range of areas including games, gymnastics, dance and athletics, swimming and outdoor adventure activities.
In line with our Values, we promote healthy life choices and teach pupils how to look after their bodies well.

Woodlands also provides other opportunities for children across the school to take part in sport through a variety of lunch time and after school clubs.
We are part of the School Sports Partnership and use specialist teachers for some of our P.E. sessions which provides both quality provision and opportunities for CPD (staff development).
Our pupils enjoy representing Woodlands at a range of local competitions and tournaments including swimming, athletics, speed stacking, cricket and kwik sticks hockey.
Annually, the children take part in the school's Sports Day, which is a popular event amongst children, parents and staff. Children represent their House Colours, competing against one another.
We aim to provide as many wider opportunities as we can to develop curiousity, confidence, team work and passion. The children in Key Stage 2 enjoy taking part in a range of outdoor pursuit activities such as climbing & abseiling, during their residential trips.
We celebrate the achievements and children's participation in sport through assemblies, our Twitter page and newsletters. Termly certificates for individuals in each class are given to those who have shown good sportsmanship and participation in PE. An award is also presented to two children at the end of Year 6.
Sports Premium Grant
As part of the Olympic Legacy, the Government is providing funding to provide substantial primary school sports funding. Jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport, the money is allocated directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The funding is ring fenced for sport and PE provision but schools will have the freedom to choose how it is spent.
