Young Carers Actions Day

16th March 2022 is Young Carers Action Day; an annual event that raises awareness of young carers and the
challenges they face. To celebrate the day, Carers in Bedfordshire is holding a Dress Purple Day to raise
money for their work with young carers, and we would like to support this by wearing a purple article of
clothing – for example socks, t’shirt or hairband, alongside our normal school uniform.

Young carers take on lots of responsibility at home; they are mature, resilient and empathetic. However,
they miss out on friendships, don’t have time for their own interests and can be bullied for being
‘different’. This can cause isolation and low self-confidence. Carers in Bedfordshire makes a lasting
difference by supporting them through these challenges.

If you are able to make a donation of to support this, please Text OAK to 70470 to donate £2.

Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message, and you’ll be opting into
hearing more from us. (Please note we can no longer accept cash donations).

If you would like further information about young carers and how our school supports them, please speak to
Miss Hulatt.

Many thanks for your continued support,

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.
