Physical activity is a very important part of life at Fair Oak Junior School. We value the important role that it plays in a child’s development, whether that be for pleasure and enjoyment or in a competitive arena. We are an active member of the Hamble and District Sports Association and are a Football Association chartered school. We are also a committed member of the Hamble, Eastleigh and District sports leagues.
At Fair Oak Junior School there are a wide range of physical activity opportunities to engage the children. These are delivered through the curriculum, where every child receives at least two hours of physical activity a week, and after school clubs run by dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced staff. Internal House competitions are also run across all sports so that all children get the chance to compete.
Fair Oak Junior School has produced a variety of highly successful sports teams in the fields of football, cricket, cross country, athletics, rounders, tag rugby, tennis as well as netball and teams have won the right to play at prestigious venues such as Southampton Football Club and the Hampshire Ageas Bowl. In all teams, while developing a competitive element, Fair Oak Junior School is committed to a policy of sport for all and strongly emphasises the importance of fair play.
Our Squad Selection System
At Fair Oak Junior school sports squads are usually selected though performances in PE lessons as well as team trials. Squads are selected based on ability and can consist of anywhere from fifteen to one hundred pupils depending on the upcoming fixture requirements for the particular sport. Teams for events are then selected from the squad. Again, this is usually done based on ability which means that squad members will not necessarily play the same number of games in a season. Most fixtures involve students from years four, five and six although there are a few events each year also open to our year three pupils. Extra tournaments are organised by our PE coordinator, Mr Stredwick, where multiple teams will be entered. However, for the majority of events, Fair Oak will only be allowed to enter one team. It is a fantastic achievement for any child to be selected for a squad and squad members should rightly feel very proud of themselves!
