World Book Day

World Book Day is on Thursday 2nd March. This event has been running for 20 years across the Nation so we have decided to launch a fantastic celebration! This year, we have arranged a variety of fun events and learning experiences around the books we enjoy.

We would like the pupils to dress up as a book character, bringing their favourite books alive, and donating £1.We will send off all the money donated to Book Aid International, a charity that ensure all people have access to books around the World.

In school during the day, the children will spend time completing fun reading activities, finding out about famous authors and enjoying their favourite books with their friends. We will also have a Where’s Wally competition for pupils to spot Wally who will be hiding somewhere around school. One lucky person will win a hand knitted version of Wally himself! (A name will be picked from a hat during assembly) All children will receive a £1 book token to spend in our local bookshops.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

On behalf of the governors, the staff, pupils I would like to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy. We are friendly village school with exciting times ahead as we begin our journey of being a full primary school this year. We are a member of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation and work closely with all of the schools within the Federation, 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 all of the team 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 skills in each subject to enable children to grow in all areas and be successful, not only in key assessments, 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, PTA and governors.

If you would like any further information about our school please make contact via the details on this website.
