School will REMAIN CLOSED until January 5th

There is a plan for Friday for KS2 children at church in the morning and KS1/Reception children in the afternoon, details below.



Arrangements for Friday: 

Key Stage 2 children (Years 3,4,5,6) are invited to come to church for 9.15am.

We will have some games, food, singing and possibly a Christmas DVD or quiz.

Wear your Christmas jumper and a Christmas hat if you have one!

Children should be collected at 11.15am and will need to be signed out by a parent or carer.


Key Stage 1 children (Years 1 and 2) and Reception children are invited to come to church for 1pm.

We will run through our nativity songs and then have some games, food and a Christmas DVD.

Parents are invited to come and join us at 2.45pm when the children will be dressed in their costumes and sing some of the nativity songs for about half an hour.

Wear your Christmas jumper and a Christmas hat if you have one!


Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday! I hope we can have some fun to make up for this very strange week we have had.

Update 6pm Wednesday


I have spoken to the heating engineer at school who has tried everything he can think of to get us heating however as I feared this is not possible. He has got one boiler going but it is just not sufficient to heat the building or the water on its own and he can't guarantee that it will not cut out again if it gets overloaded. I am very sad but I have to make a decision to close the school to children until January.


However we have a plan for Friday to provide something for KS2  in the morning and KS1 and Reception in the afternoon. I know this does not by any means replace a week in school but it will be a chance for children to see each other before the holiday and have a bit of fun together. I am just firming up arrangements and will post the timetable for the day later. I realise that for some of you this will be difficult and some children may not be able to attend, this will not be marked as an absence for anyone as all children will just be signed in and out on the day.


Thank you for sticking with me today and putting up with all the messages!

'Lovely food, they had really spent a long time doing all the work. Thank you'.

 'I really enjoyed coming into the class to experience the Indian afternoon. I'm glad it went on until 4pm as I work and it was nice not to miss out. The food was lovely and I hope to be able to come to more events like this'. 

'A lovely afternoon. It was great to have the opportunity to see the children's work and to be involved in the activities they have been enjoying. Lovely food and a fantastic effort by all of the children and teachers'.

'We are very happy with the new maths homework system and value the 3 way communication parent/child/teacher'
'I've found Z's maths homework really useful. The exercises seem to reflect what the children are learning in class and we can see clear examples of the methods the children have been taught to tackle the problems'.

'Thank you for facilitating the wonderful Year 1 Arts day yesterday. J absolutely loved it. He talked about it from the moment I picked him up from Explorers and then spent an hour giving me my very own Art master class on our kitchen floor! '

Headteacher's Welcome:

 Welcome to Oxenhope CE Primary School and to our school website. I hope you will find the website a useful point of reference for up to date information about our school.

At our school we aim to develop a lifelong love of learning and discovery in the context of a Church of England school. Our aim is to be a truly inclusive school with a shared culture and a positive climate based on Christian values, a school where people of all faiths and none are welcomed and valued. As a church school Head Teacher my vision is for a school based on equity and entitlement, educating the whole child in body, mind and spirit and which witnesses to its Christian values in the local and wider community.

At Oxenhope our aim is to provide rich experiences, a happy, quality learning environment and an outstanding quality of education. Through our exciting curriculum we nurture every child’s academic, social, moral, spiritual, cultural and physical development. Through exciting contexts we are keen to allow each child to pursue their own individual learning journey and their own interests.

We promote learning outside the classroom through our varied extra-curricular activities, after school clubs and use of the outdoors.

We work closely in partnership with parents and carers. We have an ‘open door’ policy and encourage parents and carers to get involved in school life in whatever way they feel most comfortable.

Please do not hesitate to make contact with us in school at any time.


Kathrine Nutting
