PE and Sport
We teach Physical Education (PE) throughout the school as regular weekly lessons. Children are generally taught PE by their class teachers, and we follow the Real PE approach and scheme of work.
In addition children regularly have focused opportunities to work with a specialist coach, for example in cricket, and in dance.
Our curriculum is delivered using 'Real P.E.', a scheme of work based on developing fundamental movement skills; agility, balance and coordination. These skills are taught alongside inclusive competition and other personal and social skills. A central focus on 'Real P.E.' is to help all children to become physically literate by developing their fundamental movement skills. These are the building blocks that underpin the ability to play and be involved in many different sports and activities.

Sports taught at Wood Farm School include football, tag rugby, cricket, tennis, netball, dance, gymnastics, multi-skills and athletics.
Children in Key Stage 2 are taught swimming at a local pool during years 4 and 5. Children are taught by a swimming coach and by our own trained staff. We aim for all children to be able to swim 25 metres in a recognised stroke by the end of primary school.
Children from Wood Farm Primary School take part in regular inter-school and competitive events, including the annual Headington area sports event.
