The award recognises schools for their PE provision and ‘commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community’.
Marie Gash, school deputy headteacher and PE co-ordinator, said: ““In order to earn the award, we needed to show that as a school this is a subject we are dedicated to supporting.
“It has been a lot of hard work, but it is so nice to be recognised for how much we have achieved.
“We have taken part in inter schools’ competitions, run a range of sports clubs and are inclusive in encouraging our students to all take part and have a go.”
And Kate Watson, headteacher, said news of the award could not have come at a better time with the pupils taking part in a whole school Commonwealth Games Day.
All the pupils adopted a Commonwealth country and took part in a variety of sporting competitions set up for the day.
Mrs Watson said: “There has been so much emphasis during the pandemic on what pupils missed out on and it’s these types of events that really bring us together as a school and drive our love of sport.
“We are supporting the whole child at Oak Tree and it important to us to celebrate all pupils and their strengths across a broad curriculum.”
