Sports Funding for 2014/2015

Woodland Community Primary School

Sports Funding

2014 2015

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.  

This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.  

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary‐ aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual schools census in January.


Woodland Community Primary School will receive £9750

We will use this funding in various ways:

Increased provision for our pupils

Offering our pupils a wide range of sports extra-curricular activities, including dance, football, netball, dodge ball, and drama, increasing the number of pupil participating in these activities.

Increased the success in competitive school sports

From September this year our pupils have been competing regularly with other schools with boys and girls football and cross country. The acquisition of our school minibus means that we have been able to attend more events this year than in previous years.

Improved quality of sporting provision during lunchtime

Improved quality of sporting provision at lunchtime, pupils are able to take part in football sessions.

Specialist Sports Coach

From September 2014 we have employed a Sports Coach to offer a wider range of sports to our pupils.

A considerable amount of money has been spent on improving our resources, which are also used for our extra-curricular clubs/lunchtime activities and holiday camp.

Increasing subject knowledge and confidence

Our specialist coach works alongside teachers in lessons increasing subject knowledge and confidence in PE.

What the success will look like;

  • Contributing to raising attainment and achievement of all pupils

  • Provide high quality teaching and learning for our pupils

  • Provide high quality extra-curricular activities focusing on the interests/need of our pupils

  • Increase the participation of our pupils in school competitions

  • Increasing stronger links with our local community and schools
