The Government is providing funding of £150 Million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, sustainable and substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly met and provided by the Departments for Education, Health & Culture and Media and Sport and shall see money going directly to primary school Headteachers and Principals to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Primary PE and Sport Funding Allocation and Impact
PE at Woodlands
Here at Woodlands, we recognise the importance of an active an healthy lifestyle and we are passionate about raising the profile of sport and PE across the school, to encourage lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. This year we have been awarded the Bronze School Games Mark, of which we are extremely proud!
We aim to encourage all pupils to participate in regular sporting and PE activity, offering a wide variety of these to all children. There are a good selection of afterschool cubs taking place throughout the school year with an opportunity to take part in interschool competitions. Make sure you join up early as many of these are filled extremely quickly due to their popularity. Our pupils have competed in many events over the last year and were successful in qualifying for the Telford Winter Games. In addition to this, there are opportunities to play competitive sport at lunchtime and our Year 5 pupils run the Jumping Jaxx programme of games too.
