PE and School Sport

Chance to Shine

At Dashwood Banbury Academy we are proud of our Physical Education curriculum which takes a skills centred approach, where the fundamental skills of agility, balance and co-ordination are taught and practised and are then applied to a range of modified sports.

Strictly stageWe compete in many festivals and competitions, forging strong links with Banbury Academy and other primary schools in North Oxfordshire. We also compete in district competitions such as Strictly Dance. We offer an extensive range of different and exciting extra-curricular clubs including HotShots basketball, a before school club to wake and shake the children, martial arts and multi skills. We work closely with sporting bodies such as the Football Association, London Welsh Rugby Club, The English Cricket Board/Banbury Cricket Club and mentors from the North Oxfordshire School Sports Partnership who deliver high quality curriculum and after school coaching.



Dashwood Banbury Academy has received a Silver Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark for the merit and vision of our PE and school sport provision for 2015-2017.  This award, together with the School Games Silver Mark award, confirms the high quality of our school's physical education and our commitment to promoting and engaging in sport.
