Physical education (PE) is part of every child’s entitlement to a good education (Ofsted Beyond 2012 – outstanding physical education for all) and at Oaktree, we aim to teach 2 hours of PE every week where children take part in practical lessons, both indoors and outdoors. A wide range of physical activity is planned for each year group, in order to provide plenty of opportunity for skills progression and enable children to gain the knowledge and understanding they require to become physically literate.
In Years 3, 4 and 5, this includes two terms of swimming lessons per year. All year groups are also taught fundamental movement skills using Real PE ( a scheme by Create Development). Through games and challenges appropriate to each child's development, we engage all children in physical activity.
We also ensure afterschool sports clubs are offered to each year group at different points in the year to enable children to continue staying active outside of their lessons. Both key stage 1 and 2 have also seen recent investment in their play equipment to encourage active playtimes.
Children are given opportunities to take part in competitive sport, both within school and between schools. We enter teams into various School Games competitions each year and intended to continue this again in 2018 - 2019. Our Sports Week activities give all children the chance to compete and earn points for their class in the aim of becoming the key stage winning class.
