ENTITLEMENT FOR ALL - Every child at The Oak Tree Academy has the right to enjoy physical education and all children throughout the school take part in PE and sporting activities every week.

Children in years 1 - 6 have a minimum of two hours PE and sport every week (including swimming sessions for year 4 in termly two-week blocks). We buy in specialist sports coaching for one hour a week for children in keystage 1 and 2.
