Sports Premium

The government provides additional funding for the sole purpose of improving the provision of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport in Primary Schools. The funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education and Health, Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated directly to Primary School Head Teachers.

Due to the specialist nature of Oakwood School the needs of the children were paramount when decisions were made regarding the use of the Sports Premium.

The priorities identified and acted upon were as follows:-

  • Developing physical literacy and basic skills for all children.
  • Providing an enhanced range of sustainable physical activities for all children regardless of their needs.
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles by encouraging physical activity throughout the school day.
  • Further develop the provision of Adventurous Outdoor Education.
  • Develop the skills and abilities of all staff to ensure high quality PE.
  • Developing long term sustainable links with other local Primary Schools.
