Skipping Workshop

Skipping 4 Life day to be held on Tuesday 23rd March and Wednesday 24th March

I am delighted to inform you that we have invited “Skippy John” from “Skipping 4 Life” to work with all year groups to teach various skipping skills for the whole school on the above date.

“Skippy John” (the name Richard Hammond gave him when he appeared on “Total Wipeout”) has over 7 years of experience teaching & demonstrating skipping skills in primary schools across the UK.

Skipping 4 Life’s aim is to encourage children and adults to skip for health, fun and fitness, whilst promoting modern and traditional skipping games, including Individual Skills, Partner Skipping, Double Dutch & Long Rope Team Games.

Children do not need to buy or bring in a skipping rope for the workshop as these will be provided but if you would like to purchase a high-quality British made ‘speed rope’ for your child/family to use outside of school they are available for you to purchase. Please order and pay for these using the WisePay website. 

Skipping ropes must be ordered via WisePay by Friday 19th March to enable us to order with the skipping company, cash will not be accepted in school.

These ropes used by international skipping teams are, strong, light and easy to turn to allow children and adults to progress rapidly.

Child Ropes £4.00 each
Adult ropes £5.00 each
4m ‘Family ropes’ £7.00 each
Double Dutch £12.00.per pair
Street / Team Ropes £12.00 each

Please ensure your child/children are in their PE kits for the appropriate day for their session.

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.
