In 2013, the DfE committed to providing additional funding to primary schools to improve the provision of physical activity (P.E.) and sport.  Most schools receive £16,000 plus an additional £10 per pupil so, for the 2017/18 academic year, Woodford have received £19,830.  The government has guaranteed this funding until 2020, meaning we are able to continue to improve our provision, benefitting children already at the school and the children who will join in future years.
