Extra Curricular Activities
To further enrich their lives at the Academy, children are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities. Such activities vary from year to year but may include:
- fit club
The Academy provides access to peripatetic music teachers if parents/carers wish to buy extra music lessons. Most activities take place after the Academy day. Some of these activities are free, some fully funded by the Academy and for some children may be asked to contribute a small fee towards the cost of providing materials for these activities.
Children at Oasis Academy Byron are encouraged to participate in a variety of sporting activities ranging from gymnastics, dance, and small ball games to team games such as netball, football, lacrosse, hockey and rounders. We are currently working with specialist Sports Coaches from Crystal Palace to ensure that our children have access to high quality sports provision. The coaches run two lunchtime clubs and two after school clubs each week as well as providing curriculum instruction. At Key Stage 2, Year 3 and Year 5 have swimming lessons throughout the year.
Whilst urging the children to do their best at all times, we also believe that children should learn to enjoy taking part and that winning is not the only mark of achievement. The Academy is a member of the local schools sport partnership and benefits from participating in a range of organised competitions and sports festivals.
