"Helping Every Child Reach Their Personal Best"
We are immensely proud of our Physical Education, our sports provision and our sporting success. We offer the children at least two hours per week of good quality Physical Education as well as access to a wide range of extra-curricular sporting activity, specialist coaches and opportunities to grow as young sports leaders. Woodnewton is part of the National Healthy Schools programme and fruit and vegetables are provided for all children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Fruit is on sale daily for all children in Key Stage 2 and water is available to all children in school.
Woodnewton competes in a wide range of competitions at inter-school level and regularly fields several teams.
Our KS2 P.E. co-ordinator, Josh Moor, is currently the manager of the Corby, Oundle & Thrapston District U11 Football Team.
