Provision of PE and Sport at Woolden Hill Primary School
The school believes that physical education plays a vital role in contributing to a child’s physical and emotional development and well-being.
We aim to provide as many sporting opportunities as we can for all our pupils within the curriculum, extra-curricular activities and competitions. Presently we offer thirteen different sports clubs within the school which include – netball, football, rugby, basketball, multi- skills, fun and fitness, cross country, cricket, athletics, rounders, baseball.
This funding will enable the school to build on the quality of PE and sports provision throughout the school. Also it will enable us to provide additional sporting opportunities for the children both in the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities and competitions.
Long Term vision
Our long term vision is to develop a Discovery Schools Sports Programme. The programme would see a wide range of sports and events being delivered so that all children and young people would have access to them. In order to do this a ‘sports manager’ would be appointed to manage, operate and deliver much of the programme. Specialist coaches would work across the cluster of schools in curriculum and after-school time. By pooling a percentage of the funding across the Discovery schools a strong, sustainable sports partnership would be developed.
