Evaluated SPORTS FUNDING 2018-19 




At the Oaktree School we believe that PE and sport plays an important role in preparing our children to become healthy citizens of the future.  We have welcomed the Government’s funding so that we could improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in our school.  We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all young people.


We have undertaken a phased plan to ensure that we improve children’s fitness and teach them the skills needed to stay healthy and happy.  We have spent Sports Funding in two ways; improving teaching and learning of PE and initially building an infrastructure to support learning.  Every year we spend money training staff so that a high quality of sports teaching takes place and providing equipment. 


Improving the Infrastructure

Phase 1 – Complete.  Large play equipment fitted with money raised by PTA and fundraising £50.000.  This equipment gets children moving and having fun at the same time. The slide provides climbing exercise for the legs; bars exercise arms and shoulders; jungle gyms strengthen arms, legs and shoulders; and all the equipment together encourages children to run from one piece to another, giving them a healthy dose of cardiovascular, heart-healthy exercise.


Phase 2 – Complete  Cycle Track and 24 bikes. (Sports Funding £15,990).  We believe that to stay healthy and fit, it is important that children should learn to be physically active.  We consider that cycling is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of health issues associated with a sedentary lifestyle. To encourage children learn to cycle as early as possible we have built a cycle track across the field so that children can learn to cycle. 


Phase 3 –  Complete   Outdoor Gym (£14,812). The gym equipment will provide physical and health benefits by building strength in all the major muscle groups, developing cardiovascular fitness, improving flexibility, balance and co-ordination. Fitness markings on playground (£2,000).

  • All teachers worked alongside a sports specialist to improve the children's teaching and learning experience in sport.  We focused upon team games; first learning the skills required and them competing in small competitive games.
  • There was an improvement in the quality of the teaching of rugby and hockey to whole classes. 
  • Children were able to demonstrate a wider range of skills.
  • Children were playing mini matches at the end of the year showing resilience and good team work.  
  • There was an obvious enjoyment shown by the children.
  • Teachers were able to plan more effectively for the teaching of hockey and rugby for this age group.
  • We audited the equipment that we have and upgraded and provided more effective storage.  
  • Disadvantaged Groups:  We monitored the performance of our disadvantaged group of children and working with parents provided more opportunities for this group to take part in extra curriculum activities financed through Pupil Premium funding.
