Oaks Primary Academy is a learning place where we want everyone to succeed and thrive.
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy sport and develop healthy life styles. The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the Games and introduced new funding arrangements for schools from September 2013 to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children in primary schools.
OaksÂ Primary Academy 2013 â€“ 2014 allocation was Â£8,600.
Oaks Primary Academy 2014 â€“ 2015 allocation was Â£8,665.
Oaks Primary Academy 2015 – 2016 allocation was Â£8,665.
Oaks Primary Academy 2016 – 2017 allocation was Â£8,710.
We are using this to enhance the quality and breadth of our PE provision for OaksÂ children by:
Employing our own specialist PE coach to improve the quality of PE teaching and learning.
Increasing participation in school sport by running additional after school PE clubs.
Providing opportunities for more children to participate in sporting tournaments and fixtures.
Organising healthy schools week in the summer term.
We are confident that many pupils will benefit as a result of this enhanced funding.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupilsâ€™ interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupilsâ€™ good achievement in reading.
