Friday 12th June-Big Sing for Peace

Wow, what a fantastic day I had today in the company of our Year 2/3 Singing Club! 

We took part in a workshop all about peace,as part of it the children made peace doves and wrote peace poems. We took part in the Big Sing in City Park along with children from other Bradford Primary Schools, parents and members of the public. The children enjoyed lots of songs with actions and dancing. We met the Lord Mayor and had a photo with him.

The children performed on stage, the only school to do so in the lunchtime slot and some of the youngest at the event. The children sang beautifully to a large audience, I was so proud of them and felt very emotional by the time they came off stage! 

The children's behaviour was impeccable throughout and was commented on by lots of people involved. 

The event was so well organised and made me proud to be part of Bradford. The whole day was a lovely experience for children and adults alike with a key message that we sang about in our song:

'We will try to make this world of ours a place where all can live in the unity and brotherhood of man'. 

Well done Singing Club!

Den Building Week 2nd-5th June
 
We are supporting 'Save the Children Den Day'-The idea is that children are sponsored to build dens out of all kinds of materials both indoors and outdoors. For more information have a look at: www.denday.org.uk

During this week we will be asking the children to build dens and to bring in ‘den building’ donations which will all be sent to Save the Children to support their work around the world. The idea of building a temporary den is very apt in light of the recent earthquakes in Nepal where we see people living in temporary structures constructed with whatever they can find in the wreckage of their country.
·         £95 could buy a kit to help a family to protect their shelter against the weather.

Can you help us? We need materials for our den building and would be grateful for lengths of cloth, old curtains, net curtains, large cardboard boxes and pieces of cardboard, large cardboard tubes, pieces of wood or plywood, bamboo canes, string and rope, carpet tiles, in fact practically anything can be used to build a den! If you have any materials we could use they can be brought into school on Tuesday 2nd June. If you would like to donate to Save the Children donations can be given in at the school office.
 
Thank you
Mrs Nutting

We have adopted a new school prayer.

Celebration Assembly-please can I politely remind all parents and carers that we cannot allow photos or filming during the assembly but that we will make an opportunity for you to take a photo of your child at the end of assembly. Some children cannot be photographed as it may be a safeguarding risk or their parents may have chosen not to have their child on photos which may be shared outside school. As part of our parent/carer acceptable use policy we ask that you all sign the agreement which I have copied below. I must ask that everyone adheres to this policy in order to respect the wishes of all parents and the safety of every child. Thank you.

‘I understand that there may be children within the school who cannot legally be photographed or filmed for child protection reasons and I agree not to take photographs or film while on school premises’.

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.
