As we enter into a period of being at home, please give consideration to excercise. Being active can improve your physical health, help manage stress and anxiety and just generally make you feel better. Please find some advice from Sport England that will help support both children and adults to stay fit.

At The Oaks Community Primary School our physical education sessions are delivered primarily through Vara Sports. The company provide PE sessions that are progressional for our children not only as they move through school but also as the school year progresses. This is supported through our scheme of work ‘Complete PE’. We have a highly trained coach who teaches the lessons and also provides professional development for staff. At present he also offers before and after school clubs 5 nights a week and they structured games at lunch times daily. 

The children have also received a range of sporting sessions delivered by The Oaks Schools Sports Partnership including Curling and Sports Leader Training and Progressive Sports who have been in school to work alongside the children in Year 2 and Year 5.

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.
