Year 4 - St Mary's Church Visit

We have been invited to attend a Creative Prayer session during the afternoon of Monday 27th February, at St. Mary’s Church,
Oakley. The afternoon will be organised by Jo Ann Gaunt, Schools’ Christian Worker, assisted by volunteers.

The aim of the visit is for the children to explore prayer in practical ways, its purpose, and to begin to decide for themselves
whether prayer has a place in their own lives. During their time at Oakley Primary School, we strive to ensure that children learn
about and from different religions in an objective and tolerant manner, with a strong empathise on our school values.

The session is suitable for all children, whether they follow a particular religion or not. During the session, there will be an
opportunity for prayer, but they are welcome to choose not to pray if they wish.

We shall need some parent/carer volunteers to help us walk to and from the church, and to help supervise children. If you are
able to help, please contact the school.

We shall leave school at
1.30 pm and return by 3.15 pm.

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.
