Our Curriculum

At Oakley, we are proud of our engaging and exciting curriculum. We are committed to ensuring that all subjects of the National Curriculum are taught in detail and with interest so that children retain information during the year and beyond. Please find below our Curriculum Statement, which details our approach.

If you wish to have any more information about the school curriculum, please speak to your child's class teacher or refer to the termly curriculum overviews available on the school website.

At Oakley, we understand the importance of a well-rounded, fulfilling curriculum to prepare our children for the next stage of education, and for their future as citizens of the United Kingdom. For more information about how we do this through our curriculum, please explore the curriculum pages and related documents.

For teaching Phonics and early reading, we follow Little Wandle. More information can be found on the relevant tab in the right-hand menu.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

It brings me great pleasure to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy, a proud member of the Meridian Trust. Having joined the school in September 2023, I am honoured to be here to seek to make Oakley the first-choice school for parents and carers in the heart of the community of our wonderful village and local area.

We hope that, during their time with us, our children will enjoy exciting new experiences, deepen and broaden their knowledge of our curriculum, make new friends and love every day. We are very fortunate to have a highly-experienced, professional and dedicated staff body whom I know are committed to ensuring we do our very best for your children.

If you are a parent / carer who is considering sending your child to join our fantastic school, we encourage you to come and see us 'in action' during the day. We are confident that you will agree this is a place your child can thrive.

I look forward to meeting you.

Mr. Callum Brown
