Based on the PE and sports provision that we offer at O.L.I, we have recently received the gold School Games Mark for the academic year 2019/20. This is the fourth year in a row that our school have been awarded with this award and further confirms the excellent standards of physical education at our school. Additionally, we have been awarded a 'Recognition' School Games award for this academic year from our KIngston School Games Organiser, with only a select few locals receiving this accolade.
O.L.I. have for the second-year running won the prestigious Borough Sports Participation Trophy for 2019/20. By taking part in 30 inter-school sports events up to March, with more than 250 children (including multiple events) participating during the course of the year, we came in a wonderful and well-deserved 1st place out of the 40 primary schools in the borough.
We regularly add information to our school's page on the School Games website including sports-based blogs written from pupils and teachers alike. In fact O.L.I have in recent years won blogging awards for write-up based on sports events in which we have participated in. In addition, this page contains information on the inter-school sports events which O.L.I competes in.

In the Spring term year 6 pupils visit an activities camp for a week long PGL residential trip where they participate in outdoor and adventurous activities. The main objectives of the trip are to encourage independence, teamwork and communication and this, for many, this will be the first time that they have been away from home for such a period of time, but they always all come back with a smile on their faces, having had the best time ever!
