World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day – Friday 9th October


This year we will be participating in #HelloYellow. This is an event ran by YoungMinds, a charity that support young people and their mental health. The money raised from this day will help YoungMinds continue to support thousands of young people and their families, which is especially needed at these difficult times.

This year World Mental Health Day will be held on Friday 9th October, and we will be taking part by wearing yellow or with something yellow in. We will be asking for a donation of £1 to participate.

Please ensure that clothing worn on the day is comfortable and suitable for usual school lessons and the weather forecast for that day. Children should wear trainers or their usual school shoes.

The children will engage with mental wellbeing activities and learn more about the charity and the amazing work they do with children, young people and their families.

I think we can all agree that we need a little more brightness and sunshine during these challenging times.

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.
