PE and Sports at Red Oak Primary School


Throughout the year, we offer our children many different after school clubs, such as; football, tag rugby, gymnastics, Rock climbing, Horse riding, athletics and cross country, bench ball, multi-skills, basketball and dancing. We change our sports clubs every half term, to give children more opportunities to try out different sports.


We are a very competitive school and our school sports motto is ‘Believe to Achieve’. We have this motto printed on our team kits and the motto is also displayed around our school. We train hard, try hard and we never give up. Our sports teams compete in the local Lowestoft and Beccles Schools Sports Partnership competitions and we also have regular competitions against our neighbour school, Meadow Primary School.

Active Learning Trust Tournaments

Our school is sponsored by the Active Learning Trust (ALT). The trust is made up of 5 schools in our area, Grove Primary School, Westwood Primary School, Reydon Primary School, Pakefield Primary School and Red Oak Primary School. The five schools compete against each other in many different academy tournaments. The ALT tournaments are organised by the PE and Sports Department at Red Oak Primary School. The department is led by Mr J Lee (Red Oak PE and Sports Coordinator) and he is supported by Mr B Milburn and Mr J Child (Red Oak PE and Sports Instructor).

The Golden Mile

We run a lunchtime club called ‘The Golden Mile’. The Golden Mile is a national scheme set up by the Premier Sports Organisation. The club encourages children to participate in lunchtime running events, where they collect points for their class. Each week the class with the most participants is awarded the Golden Mile Cup. The Golden Mile encourages children to become more active and it allows us to monitor the fitness of children within our school. We use the Golden Mile to collect data to show how our children are improving in their fitness. The Golden Mile is also led by our Year 6 student sports leaders. The Sports leaders organise the club and collect the data for the school database.

Ipswich Town FC Partnership School

We are proud to be associated with our local Suffolk professional football team; Ipswich Town FC. In 2015 we took some of our children on an amazing school trip to watch Ipswich Town play against Brentford FC. The children had a great time and wrote fantastic match day reports for the junior Ipswich Town FC website.


School Houses

We have four sports houses at our school. All of our houses are named after British gold medallist Olympians. Every child in our school (from nursery up to Year 6) is placed in a sports house and the houses compete against one another every year to try and win the house cups at our annual sports day events. Our sports days are very competitive, with lots of gold, bronze and silver medals awarded to winning individuals. Our house cups are displayed in our trophy cabinet and each trophy is decorated with the winning house’s colours. Below is a list of our sports houses:

Seb Coe House (Red)
Kelly Holmes House (Blue)
Jessica Ennis House (Green)
Daley Thompson House (Yellow)
