For the academic year 2016/17 the school will receive funding of £9775 as well as additional carry forward from previous years to make a total of £19117 in funding for the PE and Sport Premium. This money will be used to:
- Improve the teaching knowledge of staff at the school through training
- Hire specialist coaches to come and work alongside school staff to up skill them to improve teaching and learning
- Buy resources to help staff improve their knowledge of teaching
- Increase participation in events such as the School Games or other events between schools
- Run events with other schools that encourage children to engage in sport.
In 2017/2018 we have spent the money as follows:
£8340 (44%) on Staff Development, either through working alongside coaches or attendance of professional courses.
£1169 (6%) on equipment to enable extra clubs to run or for children to enter into competitions.
We are also using coaches to assess and work alongside those children that have low participation levels or activity levels. In addition to this we will be running Energy Clubs to target these children.
We are expecting to spend a further £3200 on CPD and coaching for the Spring term (2017) with a similar amount expected for the Summer term. This would mean that by the end of this year we will have spent £14740 on coaching (77%).

At Woodland Grange we run a large number of clubs in a variety of different sports. Participation rates are always very high and children are encouraged to get involved.
We are also very keen to take advantage of the many sporting competitions organised across Leicestershire, including:
- Tag Rugby
- Football (mixed and girls only)
- Cross Country
All of our children relish the opportunity to represent us in competitions and there is always a wonderful, positive team spirit.
We also entered some of our pupils with additional needs into inclusive sporting competitions as well as supporting pupils who have low participation or activity levels. We are using coaches to assess and work alongside these children.

We currently have a School Sports Organising Committee (SSOC) that runs activities at lunch times several times a week including intra-school competitions.
The SSOC have also undertaken Level 1 Playmaker training as organised by our local School Sports Partnership (SSP).
They also lend out equipment each lunchtime to enable our children to be as active as possible.
