We are very priveledged and proud to be one of 104 primary schools out of 20,925 in the UK to be awarded the Platinum School Games Award.
PE and school sport is highly valued here at Oughtrington Primary School. For 4 years we achieved the ‘Gold’ award consecutively. For the last academic year of 2017-2018 we achieved the ‘Platinum’ award which we retain for 2 years. This is a fantastic recognition for the hard work the children and staff have done in all areas of the PE curriculum and when planning and taking part in intra-school competitions. Additionally, we have excelled across a range of out of school sports competitions at local, district and county level.
The government pledge to honour the Olympic legacy of 2012, was to provide funding to all schools in acknowledgement of the important role PE and school sports play in enhancing the physical, social and emotional well-being of our young people. At Oughtrington, we believe that this funding has had a positive outcome on our children and staff and has enabled us to aspire to greater heights. More information about the PE funding is at the bottom of this page.
Due to the current situation of COVID-19, we are pleased to inform you that Sport England have carried over our Platinum award for another year!
