Our Trust Vision Statement;
Sport forms an integral part of a pupil's life at Woodhouse West Primary School. The school's aim is to encourage healthy living, inclusion and ensure progression and enjoyment in all areas of Physical Education. Crucially, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to develop their potential to the very best of their abilities in competitive and non-competitive sports. For this reason we provide pupils with the opportunity to gain fulfilment and a love of sport which will stay with them for life.
Alongside the two PE lessons which pupils participate in each week, they are also encouraged to commit to at least one team sport in the after-school activities programme,(we work hard to provide pathways to local sports clubs, as well as community clubs), although pupils are encouraged to pursue other talents and interests as well. We provide access to School Games, as well as Forge School Sport Partnership competitions, for all year groups. Through competition and challenge we want pupils to be able to celebrate the occasions when they are successful, whilst realising that sportsmanship and fair play have a key role to play in the sporting world and their adult life.
We in our Trust Primary Schools believe in the value of P.E. and Sport. We have committed to buying the ‘Elite’ package of Forge School Sport Partnership with our ‘P.E. and School Sport Grant [Sport Premium].
