Jeans for Genes Day

As in previous years, Oakley Primary will be taking part in this year’s Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 21st September.

1 in 25 children has a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. By wearing our jeans and donating, we will help change the lives of these children.

All children and staff are invited to wear jeans or an item made from denim on Friday 21st September. We’d like everyone to take part and come to school wearing denim and with a £1 donation for the charity. Please ensure for safety reasons that clothing is suitable for normal school work and no open toe shoes or high heels worn.

During the week, the children will be learning more about the Jeans for Genes charity, and the families it supports.

The website jeansforgenes.org have a series of powerful five-minute films to explain how your child’s donation will make a difference. Each film provides a compelling and personal insight, introducing some amazing children living with genetic disorders, sharing first-hand what life is like with their condition. Please visit jeansforgenes.org/schools for more information, to view these films and to find out more how our support will help.

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.
