Oakfield Primary Academy

We are proud of ourselves. We are proud of each other. We are proud of our community. 

Sports Premium

At Oakfield Primary Academy we offer an array of opportunities to our students in PE that aim to develop their physical, social and cognitive skills. We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital in contributing to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. We value our student’s progress and aim to provide opportunities to them in inclusive and engaging environments that is intended to develop pupils’ self-confidence when they participate in physical activities. We promote the ‘Sporting Spirit Values’ of Determination, Self Belief, Passion, Honesty, Respect and Teamwork; and focus on developing great sportsmanship among all our students.

PE Lessons

Within PE lessons students develop and showcase their skills in a wide range of sports including Football, Cricket, Dance, Gymnastics, Swimming and Athletics. Through the selection of logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their ability, will enjoy success and be motivated further to develop their individual potential. At Oakfield we have created our own bespoke PE curriculum that follows the national curriculum for PE but also plans opportunities for children to excel across a range of sporting activities.  It is important that pupils are given the opportunity to evaluate their performance so as to improve it and enjoy success. At the conclusion of each half term all students participate in intra school competitions within their year group. These competitions are a fun and exciting end to the term that students and teachers all enjoy participating in.

Inter School Competitions

Here at Oakfield Primary Academy we are a member of Harris School Sports Partnership (HSSP) and participate in the school games competitions. Inter school tournaments provide students who are passionate about particular sports with the opportunity to train and improve their skills further, and represent our school proudly. We are regularly attending inter school competitions in a range of sports. This means that a greater number of children are provided with the opportunity to represent their school and feel part of a team, helping to develop other personal and social skills and attitudes.

For the start of the current academic year, Level 1 competition will temporarily replaced by personal best challenges. Level 2 and Level 3 competitions will continue to be undertaken virtually. 

 

Gold School Games Mark

We are very proud at Oakfield Primary Academy of our achievement of the Gold School Games Mark (2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019). Schools can accomplish this if they show a strong commitment to improving sport and physical activity in competitive and non- competitive environments. They must be able to display a strong engagement in sport across the whole school and endeavour to deliver quality teaching and opportunities for their students. The collaborative effort of all staff has ensured that our school has a strong PE culture and we are constantly able to offer new opportunities to our students. The School Games Mark process was cancelled in 2019-2020 and in its place, Oakfield were awarded the Virtual School Games Mark for participation and commitments towards Virtual School Games during lockdown.
