Enrichment

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities run at different times of the year. While supporting our curriculum, these activities both support and benefit from our local community. They include trips to ROKT and Utopia Gymnastics as well as many clubs such as football, netball, chess, gymnastics, basketball, cross country, golf, Zumba and yoga.


Charities

Each Friday we hold a Friday Charity Tuck Shop (replacing the Friday Bake). Our aim is to raise funds for three charities which have been decided by the school council. 

Children are invited to pay a 20p donation for a biscuit each Friday at first break. The biscuits are be provided by school. The funds raised support the following charities

Sports

The PE curriculum at Woodhouse is designed to inspire all pupils to participate, excel and succeed in physical activities and competitive sport. We provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident and have a good understanding of their health, fitness and wellbeing. From the onset of their school journey up to leaving Woodhouse, pupils develop their fundamental movement skills (balancing, jumping, throwing etc.), apply these to a sporting situation and understand the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship enabling for a life-long love for sport.

The curriculum is divided into four strands with the themes of health and fitness interwoven throughout: Gymnastics, Dance, Games and Athletics. Pupils are encouraged to thrive in competitive sport and physically – demanding activities whilst developing the values of respect and fairness.

Each year group is timetabled for a minimum, of two PE lessons a week in addition to a swimming session in the school’s on site swimming pool. Pupils are also encouraged to partake in running and skipping challenges on the school’s all weather running track and learn life-long skills through orienteering, using our bespoke orienteering course.  Older pupils participate in rock climbing and other adventurous activities at a local climbing gym and excel in gymnastics at a local, state-of-the-art gymnasium.

We are proactive in seeking opportunities for pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities both inside and out of school and have strong links with Rastrick High School, the Pennine Sports partnership and the Calderdale School Games partnership.
