Welcome to Birch class.

In Birch class, you will meet an enthusiastic class who enjoy new learning opportunities and rise to any given challenge challenge!

As soon as we come in the morning, we are ready to learn. We start the day with a challenge to warm us up for an active day of learning. We always look at the timetable to see which subjects will be linked into our topic that day and which teachers will be taking the classes. We really enjoy having lots of different teachers, being experts in their subject areas, teaching us!

To celebrate our successes, Birch class gain Dojo points that we collect for showing the values of the school, keeping on task in lessons and persisting to move our learning forward. We particularly like when a visitor notices us for our hard work and recommend a Dojo point! As we gain more points, we win prizes and earn certificates that we are really proud of. We also work towards a whole class reward, adding our points up and gaining a learning reward of our choice, like extra PE time!

Mr Smith looks forward to the coming year and is happy to speak to any parents after School should you have any questions.

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.
