PE and School Sport
Pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time
Pupils engage in competitive sports and activities
Pupils lead healthy, active lives.
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.”
