Welcome to Saplings!


We are the youngest members of Oakley Primary Academy and share our classroom with Acorns.
Our teachers are Mrs Hall and Mrs Johnson and we have Mrs Flint and Mrs Green who are amazing at helping us in the classroom with everything we do.

We provide a positive, caring, safe and stimulating environment, following children’s interests through activity-based topics. We are active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor and outdoor experiences, always bringing along our wellies so we can experience the different types of weather!

When we achieve great things (in our work or living our school values), we can move our pegs up the achievement ladder. If we get to ‘outstanding’, we get a golden ticket to place in the prize box. On Fridays, we pick two tickets to win a class prize.

Autumn 2020
Early Years will be kick starting the year with a fantastic new topic called Paws, Jaws and Claws. We will explore all things ‘beary’ and ‘beasty’ looking at familiar tales such as Goldilocks and The Tiger Who came to Tea. We will be inviting our own teddy bears to join us for a picnic as we settle into our new classroom and get to know our new friends.

Our focus this term is settling in and feeling at home. We will be learning through play as we explore the setting and learn to use all the equipment.

We look forward to sharing photos with you on our online learning platform to show you how busy we have been very soon!




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.
