As a school, we at Woodlands Meed have invested our Sports’ Premium funding in key areas to allow participation and access to timetabled and non-timetabled activities for all our students, irrespective of need and/or ability.  For example, we have recently purchased a new table tennis table for our students so that we are able to deliver activities such as table-cricket and table-tennis much more readily without the need for either an external coach or additional equipment.

These increased opportunities for our students are, and will continue to have, a positive effect on their health and well-being as well as positively impacting on their social, gross and fine motor skills.
