Retford Oaks Academy has been awarded a Silver School Games Mark. To achieve this, our PE department had to demonstrate that we:
  • have a system in place to track young people’s participation in the School Games, inclusive of physical activity
  • have tailored opportunities that attract less active young people to participate in physical activity
  • have completed the Inclusive Health Check tool
  • have a member of staff who has actively engaged with their School Games Organiser (SGO) as part of our Physical Activity CPD
  • have positioned ‘personal challenge’ as a key component of our School Games provision
  • have held or accessed a School Games Day that has a clear cultural component as a culmination of a year round competition programme
  • have a calendar that demonstrates opportunities for all young people with SEND and other targeted groups particular to our academy to take part in competitions and festivals
  • have a notice board and/or in house digital system that promotes School Games activity and uses social media for the same purpose
  • have maximised the School Games Values or our academy values to support the competition and festival experience for all young people
  • provide all students with two hours of physical education, sport and physical activity per week (made up of curricular and extra curriculum activity)
  • engage at least 35% of pupils in extracurricular sporting and physical activity every week
  • over the course of the academic year, have targeted provision for those least active young people in the academy and a minimum take up of at least 10% from those identified as least active at the start of the the academic year
  • use the School Games formats to provide the opportunity for both boys and girls to take part in age and stage appropriate level of competition
A huge well done to our ever-dedicated staff and students for achieving this fantastic accolade!
