Woodhouses Sports Premium 2017/18

Evidencing the Impact of Primary Sports PE and Sports Premium 2017/2018


The following statement describes how Woodhouses Primary School have used the sports premium funding to improve the provision of PE and sport as well as improving mental health and well being provision as there is such a strong link between the two.

Physical Education at Woodhouses Primary School

Taking part in Physical Education has been proven to have significant benefits for young people. A growing evidence base demonstrates the impact that high quality PE and sport has in improving educational standards.

It helps young people become more active and healthy and can play a central role in developing young people’s confidence and self esteem, helping develop team working and widen social and personal skills. 

Woodhouses Primary School is committed to delivering two hours a week of high quality PE for every pupil by:  

  • making sure all pupils are included; 
  • allocating equipment and space fairly and effectively; 
  • deploying, supporting and developing our staff effectively;
  • planning and delivering inclusive lessons which follow a carefully planned and graduated progression, building upon what pupils of all abilities already know, understand and can do.
  • planning and delivering differentiated activities and a wide range of success criteria; 
  • planning and delivering opportunities for challenge; 
  • monitoring and evaluating pupils’ progress and the quality of the outcomes that they achieve
  • rewarding and celebrating pupils’ achievements; 
  • providing opportunities for pupils to self-evaluate and peer evaluate performances.

Through the delivery of high quality Physical Education, including Out of Hours opportunities; we intend to give our children the skills, confidence and desires to be physically active throughout their lives.

 There are 5 key indicators that we expect our children to experience within our school:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Including 30 Active Minutes a day.
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport
