Oaksey CE Primary School

Oaksey is lucky enough to have its own primary school, in the heart of the village. The head teacher is Mrs Ursula Scott

Mrs Scott described the school in the following way:-

“Oaksey CE Primary School is a four class primary school with around 80 – 90 children on roll. Our Reception children enjoy a year in a small class of 13 children before joining classes of two-year groups with around 25 children in each class. Our strong Christian ethos focuses on children learning about the values of life and we recognise that every child is an individual and is very different in terms of ability, aptitude, interests, motivation and social and ethnic background.”

The school buildings are a mix of modern rooms alongside the traditional Victorian school building built 160 years ago. We teach the use of modern digital equipment, e.g. i-pads, alongside traditional handwriting skills, a broad curriculum which encompasses music, creative arts, sports, gardening and more recently, juggling and knitting; and we encourage all our children to recognise and extend their own special talents. Because of this wider curriculum our children achieve above average progress in Literacy and Maths.”

In March 2014 SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) had the following to say about Oaksey Primary School:-

“The school’s partnership with parents, the local community and the church is very effective as are links with other church schools in the local area.”
