Introduction to Sports Funding
Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium funding. Schools receive the funding based on the number of pupils they have in years 1 to 6. Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Although Woodfield receives funding for Key Stage 2 children, the Academy has made a very significate commitment to the current and future provision of sport and physical activity in the school and community with our new 3G Artificial Turf Pitch.
Raising Attainment in Primary School Swimming
Swimming is a National Curriculum requirement, whereby pupils should be able to swim confidently and know how to be safe in and around the water. At Woodfield Academy each Year 5 pupil participates in a 5-week programme of swimming lessons. These swimming lessons do not replace pupil’s curriculum timed Physical Education lessons.
