PE and Sports at Red Oak Primary School

At Red Oak we ensure that all of our children receive 2 hours of PE per week and we encourage all children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 to take part in free lunchtime and after school sports and fitness clubs. Our school has a PE curriculum that ensures that children at our school learn a range of skills through games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and athletics. The skills that our students learn are progressive and the steps of progression are clear to see on our school’s PE curriculum overview. Children are assessed on these skills and the data is shared with the PE Coordinator on the school centralised pupil tracker system. Red Oak also strives to keep it’s students healthy and active by making students go for a daily walk or run during their lesson times and to stand in assemblies to encourage active movement and to help combat the rise in childhood obesity and the rise of Type 2 diabetes. Red Oak has been a  pioneer school in making classrooms in the UK more active. In 2018 the school introduced ‘pedalling classrooms’ to allow children to cycle on mini desk pedals whilst they work in their lessons, this was to encourage children to be more active and to become healthier individuals. Red Oak officially became the first school in the UK to use this initiative and hundreds of schools around the UK have followed Red Oak’s example and introduced their own pedalling classrooms. Red Oak has been used as a model example school by the charity Diabetes UK as a school that is going in the right direction to combat the alarming rise of childhood type 2 diabetes and obesity. Red Oak was also named the North Suffolk Area Physical Activity School of the Year in 2019 for having 100% of it’s KS1 and KS2 children attending extra curricular sports clubs and for having 76% of it’s students representing the school in competitive sports against other schools. The school also organised 40 sports tournaments for local schools in North Suffolk in 2018-2019. Red Oak has a vast range of sports teams with the school’s internal staff training children five evenings a week in a range of sports, the impact of these sports clubs is clear to see with 100% of the children in Key Stage 1 and 2 attending after school sports and lunchtime clubs and the results have been reflected on the sports field with Red Oak winning 95 first placed sports tournaments in the past 5 school years. Red Oak has been awarded the Gold Sports Mark from The Youth Sports Trust and Sports England for the past 4 years and this year Red Oak aims to become the first school in North Suffolk and Lowestoft to gain the Platinum level Sports Mark from gaining 5 consecutive gold sports marks in a row.

The below information outlines the intent, implementation and impact of PE at Red Oak:
