Physical Education

The school is provided with money each year to improve the provision for the children within PE and Physical Literacy.

This money allows us to provide additional PE activities for the children, new resources, training for staff and funding for access to competitive sports.

In 2018 - 2019 we have used it for funding additional coaching, across the school, in Tag Rugby, Cricket, Nordic Walking and Tennis sessions. The Nordic Walking has been very successful and a competition was set up with Sutton Benger Primary School. The children were interviewed by BBC Wiltshire Radio and their short video explaining Nordic Walking can be seen here.

In 2019 we used some funding to provide four outdoor sets of fitness equipment and new play surface, to encourage physical activity at playtimes. These are in constant use!

The school also has i-can Sports Coaching to help support staff in curriculum lessons and they run a range of activities during the year, which involve  multi sports skills.

Every class from Year 1 upwards goes swimming for four terms at Cirencester Leisure Centre. This has allowed the school to enter the Mid Wilts Swimming Competition where we have been successful in individual races. 

In 2019 - 2020 we plan to evaluate the effectiveness of these additional physical activities and provide the same or different resources in order to increase the provision and progress of the children.

During Term Three, ten members (Teya, Tilly, Louis, Ella, Georgia, Willow, Maisie, Sonny, Fred and Summer) of Class Three were chosen to compete in the Malmesbury Cluster Year 5/6 Netball Festival. At the tournament, we were in a round robin pool of six teams - Oaksey, Brinkworth A, Crudwell B, St Joseph's A, Minety B and Sherston A - where our team played six minute matches.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we were unable to record any wins in the pool stage. As a result, we were drawn against St Joseph's B in the 11th/12th playoff. After a gruelling, scoreless six minutes, the referees (Malmesbury Sports Leaders) decided a shootout would be the only way to settle our deadlock. After six attempts, three from each team, Oaksey were crowned 11th place. A fantastic way to end a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon where the team showed a vast amount of progress!
