Welcome to Willow Class!

We are a Year 1 class and our teacher is Miss Hudson and Miss Green is amazing at helping us!

During the week, we are also lucky to have Mrs Johnson and Mrs Halford coming in to help us with our learning.

We love to learn and enjoy independently choosing our own learning during the school day. We have an outdoor area where we can develop our investigation and problem-solving skills.

We enjoy working hard and we love to move up the ‘Achievement Ladder’. When we reach ‘outstanding’, we receive a golden ticket which goes into our golden tin. At the end of the week, two children’s names are picked out of the golden tin to choose a prize from our prize box – we love to congratulate the children for their achievements.

Our PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday and we love to choose a book to take home from the library on a Tuesday.

We are very excited to begin our topic for this term, ‘We are explorers!’ We have already started our exploring, but I wonder where else it will take us?

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.
