PE & Sport

Primary Schools Sport’s funding:

At Woodley, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We have always been committed to providing children with a strong program of sporting activities and our Primary School Sport’s Funding is enabling us to continue to extend our provision for all our pupils, ensuring that each child will experience the benefits. We have developed an action plan in order to continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport.

How much do we get?

Each school receives £16,000, plus £5 per pupil on role in January. This is allocated in two payments in September and April. For the school year 2019/2020 Woodley Primary School received £ 20012.00


Our current priorities for spending the funding:

    • Develop staff expertise in teaching gymnastics, dance and games, in partnership with Werneth School.
    • Provide support and training to enable school staff to deliver high quality PE
    • Update gymnastics equipment to provide additional challenge for pupils.
    • Support and continue the development of an active lunchtime playground.
    • Continue to provide quality coaches for working in partnership with class teachers to deliver some PE lessons across the school.
    • Increase participation in sport through the provision of a wide range of extra-curricular clubs.
    • Provide a wider range of activities to engage the less engaged and cater for SEN pupils.
    • Increase participation in inter and intra school competitions and tournaments through membership of our local sports partnership.
    • Increase children’s awareness of how to live a healthy lifestyle through Freddy Fit and health focused days.
    • Develop leadership opportunities for pupils through the play leader system.
    • Ensure pupils leaving year 6 meet the National Curriculum swimming requirements of being able to swim 25m through providing additional swimming teachers for year 3- restricted due to COVID
