Cherry Tree Class 'mock baptism'

As part of our R.E. work this term on ‘Belonging’, we will be looking at the Christian ceremony of infant baptism.

To help further the children’s understanding , on Monday 25th June, in the afternoon, we will be taking Cherry Tree class to Oakley Methodist Church where Rev Gill Baalham will talk to the children further about this event and a ‘mock baptism’ of a doll will take place.

Please ensure your child brings a coat/sunhat that day, depending on weather forecast.

The visit is an ‘information gathering’ lesson, rather than an act of worship, so therefore suitable to children of all faiths, and those with none.

We will be leaving school at approximately 1 pm, and return to school by 2 pm.

If you have any questions about the visit, please speak to your child’s class teacher or Miss Hulatt.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

I would like to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy. We are a friendly village school with exciting times ahead as we begin our journey of being part of the newly formed Meridian Trust. We work closely with all the schools within the Trust, as well as other schools and pre-schools in the local area. This enables us to share expertise, good practice and learn and move forward together. The close links we have with the pre-schools enable us to really get to know the pupils and their families before they join the Early Years.

We are proud to be a ‘Values School’. The values we teach are modelled by our staff members and through our teaching of the curriculum. We are a supportive and hardworking team, where all stakeholders are valued and listened to.

At Oakley Primary Academy we deliver the National Curriculum through a creative curriculum so that learning is creative, fun, and meaningful. There is a clear progression of knowledge in each subject to enable children to grow in all areas and be successful, not only academically, but in daily life.

We work very closely with the families of our school and acknowledge the importance of close home/school links.

We have an open-door policy and there is always someone available if you wish to talk.

I am extremely proud of our school and of all the hard work from our pupils, families, staff, and governors.
