Years 3 & 4 visit the Gurdwara

The children are studying Sikhism during R.E. this term and to consolidate their learning a visit to the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Queen’s Park, Bedford, has been arranged for them on the morning of Thursday 9th November.

This is an exciting opportunity for the children to experience one of the largest Gurdwaras in Europe. During the visit, the children will learn more about the Sikh religion during an interactive question and answer session, followed by a tour of the building including the main prayer hall. Many of our school values are evident in the teachings of Sikhism, as well as most other world religions.

The children will leave school at approximately 9.40 am and return in time for lunch. No additional arrangements for lunch on this day are needed.

All visitors to any Gurdwara are respectfully asked to cover their heads upon entering the building and to remove shoes. Please send your child to school that day with a suitable headscarf that they can put on themselves.

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.
