We have the silver Games Mark award!


The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in

2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the

community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

Our Leaders

Throughout the year, our Sports Ambassadors will receive various training on how to become a great Sports Ambassador and will be given specific tasks after each session to try and implement in our own school. The Sports Ambassadors have already attended their first meeting at UCC and have been set tasks and goals ready for the next meeting.


In addition to this, their final task as a Bronze Ambassador will be to assist in the delivery of the Key Stage 1 Multiskills Festival on in July alongside all the other Bronze Ambassadors and the Gold and Platinum Ambassadors. This will be a great final opportunity to see the entire Leadership Academy working together to deliver an event for children in Rutland.



Our Sports Council are individuals who are passionate about sport and being active. They are responsible for organising and running the house competitions. They also receive training from Just Do Sports on leading games and activities for other children at lunchtime.



Our year 5 leaders help to run the house competitions and support the year 6s. They are be prepared for the responsibilities of being the future Sports Council for Oakhma C of E.

Key Steps 1 competition - 24th January 2018

We are immensely proud of our 6 year ones and 2 year twos who made up our gymnastics squad. Their performances and effort during the gymnastics competition today were commendable. Whilst we did not bring any medals home, each child demonstrated the 4Ps and showed their skills during their routines today. The children have been working hard on learning and practising their routines for weeks and it paid off when Helena scored 9.0 in her floor routine and Chloe earned a 9.3 in her vault which meant that both narrowly missed out on a medal even though they are only in year one! All of the gymnasts were excellent school representatives and had a great day. I think their smiles speak for themselves... 

Swimming Gala Qualification - 22nd January 2018

Huge congratulations to our swimming gala team who competed in the first qualification of the competition last night.

The finals are to be held on Monday 26th February from 2-5pm. Unfortunately, we will not have confirmation of who has made it through to the finals until the final qualification has been held in two weeks time. We will let you know as soon as we know!
