At Oare Primary School we work to motivate and inspire all young people so they enjoy physical activity and keep themselves healthy and active. We aim to support every child to achieve their physical fitness and mental wellbeing. We aim to provide opportunities for all children to compete in sport and other activities in order to help to embed values such as team work, fairness and respect both in school and within the cluster. We offer support for children who find physical exercise a challenge and ensure the gifted and talented are able to excel. Alongside our work in Science and P.S.H.E., children are taught how about healthy eating and keeping their bodies healthy. At Oare we work to ensure all children leaving our school are physically literate and have gained the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle.

Oare entered two Y5/6 teams in a Quicksticks competition at Marlborough College, competing against 8 other teams. Once again we were victorious with the blue team winning the whole tournament and the red team coming third. Not only did the blue team win every match but they scored an amazing 43 goals and conceded 0!
Our winning streak has continued with a football tournament win and a golden ticket to the Wiltshire finals. The Y5/6 team were outstanding and showed fantastic teamwork.
In our first tournament of the academic year, Oare became Dodgeball champions. 10 Y5/6 children travelled to Shalbourne school with Miss Merritt to participate in a Dodgeball tournament against 7 other teams and returned with medals and the winning shield.
