At Oakwood Junior School, we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, social, emotional and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. We aim to do this through a broad and balanced curriculum focussing on the development of the whole person. We aim to deliver high quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. In line with the delivery of ‘British Values’, we want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. 


Oakwood Junior School will achieve the above through;


  • Following a broad and balanced PE curriculum fulfilling the requirements of the National Curriculum.

  • Ensure every child moving on to secondary school can swim 25m and has basic water skills.

  • Developing the fitness of the individual, by ensuring a good pace in lessons and incorporating fitness activities into physical education lessons as appropriate.

  • Integrating, where possible, into other curriculum areas. E.g. use of athletics data in maths.

  • Developing programmes that meet the needs of all the children, providing equal opportunities.

  • Involving the community where possible - e.g. Sports Day, clubs, intra/ inter-school matches, outside coaching personnel and resources.

  • Provide enjoyable experiences, where positive attitudes of sensitivity, leadership, co-operation, competition and tolerance may develop. 


In addition to the school curriculum our students compete in a range of inter and intra school competitions, sports festivals and local cluster fixtures taking place at regular intervals during the appropriate season.


Along with the large variety of physical activity within the curriculum we also offer a range of after school clubs and lunchtime activities.
