PE & Sports
We use the positive impact of sport to empower our students and often it is the first time in their lives that they experience personal success within an educational setting. Sport helps to teach them to manage their anger in a positive way and importantly gives them the confidence to try new challenges academically as well. Many of the children and young people who come to us have very low self esteem and lack confidence; through sport we build up their esteem and confidence so they take a pride in what they achieve at New Woodlands School as well as in themselves.
Through sport we open up opportunities for all our students that they didn’t even realise were there. We offer excellent role models in the sports professionals we employ. We view sport as the vehicle to keep young people away from the attraction of street culture and provide each student with a positive and healthy choice of life style.
