EYFS - Height and Weight

All children in Reception and Year 6 will have their height and weight measured this year as part of the
National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP). It is important to understand how children are growing,
so that the best possible advice and support can be provided for them and their families.

The measurements will be taken by the School Nursing Service and carried out in a private area away from
other pupils. Children are fully dressed, except for their coat and shoes, and no child’s measurements will
be given to school staff or other children. The programme will be delivered in a COVID-safe way, in line with
the school and the school nursing service’s safety control measures. This includes robust hand and
respiratory hygiene and enhanced cleaning arrangements for the rooms and equipment used to measure
your child’s height and weight as recommended in the national guidance for schools and healthcare.

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.
