At Woodbury, the aim of the Physical Education Curriculum is to provide all children with the opportunity and guidance to develop their physical abilities.
Our aim is to provide practical, skill-based learning through the teaching of both physical education and sport. Our curriculum is designed to develop a child’s love of learning, physical ability, cognitive, social and sport-specific skills. Additionally, PE skills are developed and progressed within each year group. We aim for every child to enjoy physical education and hope that we can embed a love of physical activity, which will be maintained in adult life. Every child should be made to feel that they are capable of success in PE and this could be as an individual, pair or team. We believe it is important for children at Woodbury understand the importance of being active and the positive effects it can have on physical and mental wellbeing.
At Woodbury our intention is for each child to have the opportunity to take part in competitive activities during PE time or as an extracurricular activity or event throughout the year. We offer a wide range of physical educational activities during and after school. These build pupils’ skills, fitness and confidence. . Individual and team development and competition, as appropriate, is encouraged both within and across schools. Over the last few years we have achieved much sporting success, both locally and at regional level.
PE Curriculum Statement Skills Progression
At Woodbury School we value the contribution which physical activity makes to the health and well-being of our children.
We also believe that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.
Until the academic year 2020/2021, the Government is making available an annual sum of money to schools to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This is the School Sports Premium Funding and presently equates to £8000 per school per year plus an additional £10 per child. Schools have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and sport. We choose to spend our funding upon broadening the sporting experiences of our children and increasing the teaching skills of our staff so that they can deliver high quality PE lessons and sports opportunities into the future. Please read the reports below to find out in detail how we have used our School Sports Premium.
