Subject Leader: Mr Michael Keady
Based on the PE and sports provision that we offer at O.L.I, we have retained our Gold School Games Mark for the academic year 2020/21. This is now the fifth year in a row that our school have been awarded with this achievement and further confirms the excellent standards of physical education at our school. Additionally, in 2019/20 we were awarded a 'Recognition' School Games award from our KIngston School Games Organiser, with only a select few locals receiving this accolade.
O.L.I. are the current holders of the prestigious Borough Sports Participation Trophy, winning this accolade in 2018/19 and 2019/20. While all schools in the borough and across the country did not compete in inter-school sports events in the last academic year due to Covid restrictions, we were active in participating in virtual events and ensuring our children did not miss out by hosting intra-school competitions and having sports visits such as former international gymnast Steve Frew.
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!
