PE and School Sport

At Oakmeadow, we recognise the positive outcomes that a high-quality PE and school sport curriculum can achieve in all personal, social, cognitive and physical aspects of a child’s development and well-being. We strive for teaching and learning of PE that promotes confidence, participation, progress and performance in a safe and supportive environment. We aim to embed a culture of PE and school sport of participation, enjoyment, academic achievement, and understanding of health and well-being of our pupils that they continue to live by beyond our school. Our PE curriculum is inclusive and we ensure that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives. Through this, we meet the needs of Physical Education programme of study as set out in the National Curriculum for Primary Schools (2014)
National Curriculum aims 2014:
 Pupils develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
 Pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time
 Pupils engage in competitive sports and activities
 Pupils lead healthy, active lives.

Inclusion links with Severndale:
Since 2017-18, we have made an extremely successful link with Severndale Specialist Academy, where their children visit us on a weekly basis to take part in PE lessons.  Children from our school have also had the opportunity to visit their fantastic facilities.  We have found this to be a mutually beneficial link-up, as our children get to make new friendships whilst assisting Severndale children in their learning, and Severndale get to experience larger lessons in a mainstream setting.
I want to say thank you so much for the amazing opportunities and experiences you have provided for M3 during the past two terms.

Yesterday afternoon when we joined you for the final session I watched my students confidently and happily enter the sports pitch, calling out hello to their friends, running up to them and greeting them which was equally reciprocated, they then asked Miss Turner  if they could be with their friends in their teams.

Through the inclusive sessions our children have learnt the importance of  being part of a team and experienced the joy of working together to achieve success.

They have learnt how important rules are to ensure fairness and safety when playing sporting games, to share and to respect one another.

I have observed the Owls show tolerance and understanding of the needs of my pupils and more recently they have begun to learn that M3 students have to play by the rules and that there must not be any exceptions to these rules. That they can challenge M3 students when playing sports and that if student who is 'out' doesn't want to be out they still have to be!

I hope that we will get to work together again in the future, the whole experience for myself, Becky and the young people of M3 has been incredible and something that will hopefully stay with us for the rest of our lives.

Oakmeadow Win the Football Treble

11th May 2019

Oakmeadow Football teams have had a superb season culminating in them winning the Football Treble: The U9, U10 and U11 Shropshire County Cup. The school won their latest Cup Final by beating Market Drayton 4-0 which secured the treble. This is an amazing accolade which hasn’t been seen in     Primary School Football before.

The Under 9 Team were crowned Shropshire County Cup Champions beating Harlescott 2-1 in the Final.

The Under 10 Team were crowned County Cup champions with a well-earned victory over Greenfields, another 2-1 win. Our talented under 10’s also managed to complete the double by winning the district cup, a great 3-0 win over St Georges.

The Under 11 Team completed the treble, County Cup winners beating Market Drayton in the final 4-0 with all four goals scored by Maddox who earned   himself the match ball. They have also represented Shropshire this season at the regional finals held in Nottingham, the boys were unlucky to miss out on the semi-finals by goal difference.

Our Under 11 B Team came runners up in the Kerrison Jones cup, after losing out on penalties, heart break for the team but they can hold their heads up high after putting in a tremendous performance.

We also need to thank our amazing ball girls/boy for spending the day at the finals, if it wasn’t for you the day wouldn’t have run so smoothly.

Miss Turner, Football Coach, said:

“We are extremely proud of all the hard work our football teams have put in this season and they deserve this success. A very well done to all of them and a big thank you to all the parents/carers who turn out to support them.”
