At The Oaks we aim to offer the children a wide range of experiences linked to sports, well being and mental health. We try to ensure that the children have opportunities to work alongside highly skilled staff and outside organisations including KABS, Core fit and COAKS as well asbeing able to participate in every sporting competition and festival available.

The PE and Sport Grant funding, which is in an addition to main school funding, is allocated by the Department for Education to improve the quality of PE and sporting activities offered to pupils.


Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2017. The number of children recorded on the annual schools census for January 2017 is 130 and the total amount of Sports Premium Funding for this academic year is £17,300.

All of our Key Stage Two children benefit from swimming lessons at our local swimming pool at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village. Children attend lessons on a Friday afternoon and these are delivered by training swimming instructors at the centre. As we recognise the importance of being able to swim, children who can not swim unaided by the end of their year groups sessions attend additional swimming lessons.
