Day 16 of 2019-2020 and we have had such a positive start to the new year!

We were welcomed back at the start of term with the exciting news that we had been awarded three quality marks. The PSQM- Primary Science Quality Mark, the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold award and Eco Schools Award- Silver!!! This is such an achievement for the children and staff at Oakway, I am very proud of their drive to constantly improve and provide exciting learning experiences for the children.

We have launched our new 2019-2020 curriculum with a topic for each year group that is all about our local area- ‘Welcome to Wellingborough’. The children are busy visiting and researching various places in our town, developing their historical and geographical skills and knowledge. I am looking forward to the displays in year groups to celebrate what the children have learnt. There will be more information about our curriculum to follow for parents and families at our parent evenings in October- remember to book in to meet your child’s teacher through the online booking system.

Later this month we will be publishing our statutory assessment results for July 2019, we are very proud of the progress the children have made and have already drafted our plans for continued improvement for this academic year. Have a look on the website for more information regarding improvement planning.

Oakway is 50 in 2019!

Oakway Primary School opened on this site in September 1969. We are planning a celebration for the children, families and local community at the end of this academic year however we are also asking for memories, photographs and visitors who have previously taught here or attended Oakway as a child. Please get in touch if you have anything you’d like to share.

We will be launching our Oakway Facebook page later this month and will keep you updated of its progress. We aim to use the page to share information for children an families and celebrate the amazing things that happen here at Oakway.
