Title: Welcome Headteacher Ms. Joanne Garlick M.Ed. B.Ed Hons Chair of Governors Mrs Michele Cairney


1
Welcome
Headteacher Ms. Joanne Garlick M.Ed. B.Ed
Hons Chair of Governors Mrs
Michele Cairney
Dear Parents, / Carers, Thank you for choosing to
apply to Oakley Church of England Combined
School. I hope this prospectus answers your
questions, but please contact the school for any
additional information you may require. Our
school has a history as long as that of state
education, serving the parishes of Oakley and
Boarstall. Indeed there is evidence to suggest
there was a school for lace makers in Oakley in
the early 19th century and probably before. The
original school in School Lane was demolished in
the late 1950s and the present building was
erected on what was a water meadow in Worminghall
Road. The present school was completed in two
stages with two classrooms, a kitchen and hall
(now staff room and library) by 1959, and the
main school as it is now by 1969. The head
teacher's office was added in 2000 and the
conservatory in 2001. A new outdoor area for
Class 1 pupils, new pathways and a library
refurbishment were completed in 2009 and an
outdoor classroom was also added. We feel that
our school is special and hope that our
prospectus will give you some indications of what
we have to offer you and your child. We invite
you to visit our school so that you can
experience the warm, friendly atmosphere and
observe children enjoying the challenges of a
stimulating environment. We look forward to
meeting you and would be grateful if you would
phone the secretary to make a convenient
appointment to meet the Headteacher, tour the
school and ask any questions you may have. Miss
J E Garlick Headteacher

School Organisation
The school day starts at 8.50 am and ends at 3.20
pm. Children may arrive in the playground at 8.40
am and go straight into their classrooms where
early work will be available. A member of staff
will supervise them. There is a mid-morning
break at 10.30am and children may bring a healthy
snack such as chopped vegetables or a piece of
fruit to eat at this time. The morning session
ends at 12.00 pm. Children may either bring a
bring a packed lunch which they eat in the hall
seated in mixed age groups with midday
supervisors or order in advance from the hot
lunch choices. Meals are currently 1.85 per day
and are ordered in advance. The afternoon
session commences at 1.00 pm. Children are
collected from the playground at 3.20pm. In Key
Stage 1 we currently have 2 classes Class 1 for
Year R and Year 1, and Class 2 for Year 2. At
Key Stage 2 we also have 2 classes Class 3 for
Years 3 and 4, and Class 4 for Years 5 and 6.
Although our classes are vertically grouped, our
excellent staff/pupil ratio, enables us to ensure
that the individual needs of our children can be
recognised quickly and responded to sensitively.
Children usually work in small groups according
to their ability and interest levels. Careful
records are kept of each child's progress, both
in their learning and in their personal
development. Our non-teaching staff the school
administrator, school bursar, Learning Support
Assistants and Midday Supervisors are very
important in contributing to the family
atmosphere of the school. Parents and School The
school tries to encourage parents to show an
active interest in school and give support to the
many and varied activities and functions
organised, so that the children are aware and
benefit from the good relationships between
school and home. Parents can help by ensuring
their child completes the homework tasks set.
Parents can help teachers in the classroom with
many jobs, i.e. cutting paper, preparing paints,
helping to mount children's work, pasting
pictures on card, covering books etc. which then
enables the teacher to have more time to plan and
prepare work with the children. Parents can
also help with the supervision of children on
School Visits, and on various school occasions
such as parties, discos, fun days, sports
days...etc. Parents are invited to attend Open
Evenings giving them the chance to meet their
child's class teacher and to discuss their
child's progress.

The Curriculum
At Oakley School we are concerned with standards
and developing the abilities, confidence and self
esteem of all our pupils (including those with
special needs and the highly gifted) by providing
a broad, balanced curriculum to stimulate and
challenge the needs of primary school
children. English We believe that the
development of language through speaking,
listening, reading and writing (including
spelling and handwriting) lies at the heart of
the whole curriculum. Considerable time is spent
developing these skills and parents can help
tremendously by using stimulating and challenging
language at home. Reading development is
essential and the school uses a variety of
methods depending on each child's needs. The
Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme is used
alongside other books which can be read together
with adults. Parents are actively encouraged to
participate in their child's learning and
guidelines are available at the school. Termly
curriculum targets are sent home by the
classteacher. Mathematics The teaching of mental
strategies is important, along with number bonds
and tables. All are emphasised at the appropriate
stages and we welcome parental support in this
area. Practical activities play a large part in
our teaching as we believe that practical
experiences are important throughout the whole
primary age range. All children use ICT
programmes to develop their individual
mathematical skills. Termly curriculum targets
are sent home by the classteacher. Science Our
emphasis is on activities which require the
children to observe, sort, identify and evaluate
patterns and to communicate their findings. We
have an excellent range of materials and
equipment as we believe by experiment and
investigation our children are encouraged to be
aware of, and take interest in, the scientific
world. Art / Design and Technology Our children
have access to wide and varied media. They are
encouraged to explore different techniques to
help them understand basic ideas and use visual
symbols to convey ideas and feelings. The
children are encouraged to look at and talk about
examples of work of artists, craft workers and
designers from a variety of periods and cultures.
Children learn to plan and make models and
structures with a variety of materials. Children
have the opportunity to cook. Information
Communication Technology The school has 26
on-line computers and 6 laptops 16 of which are
in a networked suite with interactive whiteboard.
Interactive whiteboards and visualisers are also
used in all the classrooms. Children have their
own e-mail addresses to communicate with other
schools both at home and abroad. Additional
computers are available for individual work and
the school has developed an excellent VLE
(virtual learning environment) which encourages
ICT use at home to support learning in school and
is also an information site for parents.
7
Humanities Full use is made of the natural
environment in and around the school grounds for
geographical studies. The school has a heated
outdoor classroom which is regularly used. Our
children are taught about the country in which
they live as well other parts of the world.
Children learn to develop an awareness of the
past by having the opportunity to listen to
stories from different periods and cultures.
Where possible they are introduced to appropriate
artefacts, buildings and pictures. Also visits
are organised to museums and heritage sites to
further stimulate curiosity and learning. Music
Children are encouraged to explore pattern and
rhythm. They use a variety of instruments to
explore sound, aspects of performing, composing,
listening and appraising. In KS2 the children
have the opportunity to learn to play the
recorder and they are encouraged to play in
assemblies. Children have the opportunity to
learn to play piano, guitar, woodwind, brass or
string instruments by prior arrangement with the
school. Physical Education Oakley school has
excellent facilities a playground court for
netball and basketball and an extensive playing
field for a variety of sport including rounders,
athletics, football and tag rugby. Sport taster
days are organised within the partnership
schools to increase accessibility to a variety of
sporting experiences. Outside facilitators
occasionally run activities after school. The
school hall is well equipped with a climbing
frame and a good variety of apparatus suitable
for all age ranges. Throughout the summer
children have use of our outdoor heated swimming
pool. Older pupils attend weekly swimming lessons
at the Thame Leisure Centre in winter, where they
benefit from use of a larger pool and expert
tuition. The children are able to take the
personal survival and distance awards. All our
children are encouraged to participate in
activities relative to their age and ability.
This enables our children to become healthier and
more aware of the power and flexibility of their
bodies. These activities improve co-ordination
and dexterity. In October 2009 the School was
re-validated once again with the prestigious
Sport England ACTIVEMARK GOLD award in
recognition of our commitment to promoting the
benefits of physical activity and school
sport. Religious Education Our school day
includes an act of collective worship. Prayers
are said at lunchtime. Religious festivals are
celebrated with the local community who are
invited to attend services held either in the
school or church. Religious education is taught
in line with the county agreed syllabus. Parents
can exercise their rights under Section 25 of the
1944 Education Act, to withdraw their child from
assembly or RE. Any parent wishing to do so
should contact the Headteacher so that
alternative arrangements can be made. Foreign
Language French and Spanish are taught to all
children in the school in alternate years. The
children enjoy conversation, games and songs to
enhance their learning. PSHE and Citizenship Our
School has been awarded Validation in categories
1 8 of the National Healthy School Standard.
We have also gained the Investors in Families
status an intermediate level of the International
Schools Award.

Other Curricular Provision
Multi Cultural Provision This is an important
aspect of the work of the school in addressing
our aim to prepare our pupils for living with and
respecting people from other races, religions and
way of life. It forms part of the caring ethos of
our school and a belief in developing childrens
empathy and understanding. Drama At Oakley
school we encourage our children through drama,
role play, mime and acting to begin to develop
self expression and appreciation of other
subjects. In class assemblies and at Christmas,
Easter and Harvest Festivals all our children are
encouraged to participate in a production for
parents and the wider community. The children
are taken to the theatre at Christmas and
experience drama group productions in
school. Special Focus Days and Weeks We
encourage outside specialists to bring their
expertise to enhance our curriculum activities.
Themes have included International Food,
Dinosaurs, India and Music. The children have
experienced a dinosaur on the playground an Owl
Day, Indian Dancers and a Jazz Band in the hall
and they have taken active parts in a musical
drama experience with a group of other schools in
the partnership to mention just a few of the
activities they have enjoyed. Health Education
All children receive lessons which aim to develop
an understanding of attitudes and practices which
are conducive to a healthy life style. Sometimes
these are introduced as distinct topics such as
Food, Teeth, Safety at Home and Dangerous
Substances. The Community Police Officer visits
to talk with the children and to teach Protective
Behaviours. Sex Education As a matter of policy,
the school attempts to deal with childrens
questions about physical differences between
sexes and about human reproduction factually and
honestly, as they arise. Sex Education is taught
as a topic in Class 4. Parents are invited to
see the subject material in the preceding term
and have discussions with the teachers
concerned. Equal Opportunities In line with the
school's commitment to the needs of individual
pupils, all subjects within the National
Curriculum and school activities are open to
both boys and girls on an equal basis. We are
also very aware of current national trends in the
examination results of boys and girls and we are
conscious of ensuring equality of entitlement and
opportunity for both boys and girls. Special
Needs All possible assistance is given within
the school to meet the special learning needs of
each child. All children are assessed in the
normal way through teacher assessment and if
thought appropriate an individual education
programme is introduced. Where necessary, support
is obtained from the local authority, either from
the Learning Support Services, or from the
Educational Psychologist. Parents are always
consulted and included in discussions about their
childs needs. The school works closely with
parents to support individual children. Pastoral
Care and Discipline Our children are taught and
expected to be caring and respectful of each
other and adults. On the rare occasions when a
child is behaving in a difficult or anti-social
manner we invite parents in to discuss matters
with the Classteacher or Headteacher. We have a
strong behaviour policy which is upheld
consistently within the school. A copy is
available from the school office.

The Home School Partnership
Parent Contact The school keeps in touch with
parents through regular newsletters, termly drop
in sessions and information evenings. Our
children bring home letters in their book-bags
and it is advisable to check these regularly.
Curriculum overviews and targets for literacy and
numeracy are sent home termly to keep parents
informed of what the children are learning. The
parentmail system is sued to alert parents of any
important notices or to communicate letters to
home. Appointments At any time you wish to
discuss any aspect of your child's school life
you may make an appointment to see either the
Class Teacher or the Headteacher. Arrangements
can be made to see parents urgently at any time
if the need arises. Generally we ask you to speak
to the Class Teacher after school rather than
before, as teachers are busy setting up their
classrooms for the day. Parents Evenings All
parents will be specifically invited to talk
about their child during the Autumn and Spring
terms. In the Summer term there is an opportunity
for you to meet the classteacher to discuss the
annual report. However, if you have information
for us, or concerns about the school, please do
not wait for the formal parents evening, we would
much rather see you as soon as possible. Reports
All children receive a formal report which is
issued towards the end of the academic year.
Parents are invited to make an appointment to
discuss the report if they wish to do so. A
mid-year report is also issued around February
half term which gives you an idea of the interim
progress your child is making. Friends of Oakley
School There is a supportive School Association
and all parents are automatically members. This
aims to provide opportunities for the pupils,
which are not normally provided by the Local
Education Authority budgets. The committee
organises a range of social fund-raising
activities throughout the year and parents are
encouraged to attend and support the
events. Parental Assistance We welcome parent
helpers to come into our school and assist with
a variety of tasks. Some choose to help in the
class room under teacher supervision with reading
and maths games. Some offer their skills with
cookery, craft or computers others support our
swimming rota. We also welcome parental help not
directly related to the children's education but
to their school. We hold the occasional working
parties where maintenance jobs are completed by
parents.

Information
Residential Visits In Years 5 and 6, the
children are encouraged to participate in a
residential visit. This may include outdoor
activities such as rock climbing, archery,
orienteering high ropes, zipwire and quad bikes,
and some wider experience in computer technology
than we are able to provide in school. Visits to
Kingswood in the Isle of Wight usually take place
in the spring term on alternate years. Outdoor
Pursuits Opportunities to experience canoeing,
kayaking, dinghy sailing and body boarding for a
day at Bray Lake near Windsor also take place in
Years 5 and 6 and alternate with the residential
visit. Extra-Curricular Activities Netball, Tag
Rugby, Glee Club, Art Club, Latin and recorders
are available for the children. After school
clubs include drama, dance and nature club and
excellent facilities offered by the Out of School
Club. Out of School Club The club is currently
open after school on a Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday and occasionally during the holidays.
Numerous activities are on offer ranging from
craft, drama and sport as well as theme weeks.
Although the club is run as a separate venture
details are obtainable at school. School Council
/ Eco Council The children elect their own
representatives to the School Council and
Eco-Council. The Council meets with a member of
Staff on a regular basis to discuss issues that
are important to the children at
school. Charities The children are encouraged to
think of others who may be less fortunate than
themselves. We have invited speakers to visit the
school and talk to the children about their work.
In the last year, the children and their
families along with members of the wider
community, have supported Red Nose Day, Cancer
Research, Childline, NSPCC, World Wildlife Fund,
Operation Christmas Child and the Royal British
Legion. Closer to home, the children deliver
parcels of tinned goods to the elderly in the
village at Christmas and hold a Harvest
auction. The Local Community Members of the
community are welcomed into school and we have
our regulars helping with reading, gardening and
footsteps road safety training as well as
assisting with small maintenance jobs around
school. School Policies School policies are
regularly reviewed and updated. Parents are
encouraged to be aware of them and those that may
of particular interest are kept in a file at the
front door. Please feel able to browse through
the file at any time. The Headteacher will
endeavour to answer any questions you may
have.
11
Additional Information
Charging Policy (voluntary charges) From time to
time parents will be invited to make
contributions in support of educational visits
and activities, to aid their child's learning.
We include all children in the class or group
whether or not their parents contribute.
However, because of our size, activities may have
to be cancelled if parents are not able to
support in this way. We do not make a profit
from these activities, the money is used to
subsidise costs that may include those of
accompanying teachers, parents and pupils whose
parents are unable to contribute. A parent who
wishes their child to participate but feels
unable to pay all or part of the cost, should
seek to speak to the Headteacher. We do not wish
to deny any child an opportunity because his or
her parents are unable to meet costs in
full. Concerns or Complaints It is normally
expected that parents who have a concern or cause
to complain will bring the matter to the
attention of their child's teacher in the first
instance. Often a concern can be resolved very
simply by ensuring that there is a clear
understanding between parents and teachers. If
the matter is not resolved to your satisfaction,
it should be brought to the attention of the
Headteacher. If it is still not resolved by this
means you are asked to write to the Chair of
Governors so that the concern can be brought to
the attention of the Governing Body for
resolution. Non Authorised Absences Parents are
asked to note that an explanatory letter or phone
call does not, in itself, authorise a child to be
absent from school. Under the 1993 Education Act
only the school can approve an absence. Further
information can be obtained from the school.
Please note that the governing body does not
authorise any holiday leave taken during term
time and we strongly discourage parents from
doing so. Attendance is monitored rigorously and
parents will be contacted if their childs
absence falls below the expected 90 in
accordance with guidelines from the education
welfare department. Inclusion Statement
Inclusion is an ongoing process that celebrates
diversity and involves the identification and
minimising of barriers to learning and
participation that might be experienced by any
pupils, irrespective of age, ability, gender,
ethnicity, language and social background, and
the maximising of resources to reduce these
barriers. At Oakley we believe that every pupil
has an entitlement to develop their talents.
Educational experiences are provided which
develop pupils achievements and recognise their
individuality. Diversity is valued as a rich
resource, which supports the learning of all. In
this school, inclusion recognises a childs right
to a broad, balanced, relevant and challenging
curriculum, which is appropriate to their
individual abilities, talents, and personal
qualities.
12
Teaching and Learning
Teaching Methods There are a variety of teaching
methods used in the classroom, depending on the
subject taught and the age of the children. For
the majority of lessons the children remain in
their class groups. Most lessons start with a
whole class introduction from the teacher, then
the children tackle the activities planned either
individually, or in small groups. Children are
grouped by ability, interest or skill level
usually either within their class groups although
there is more flexibility in KS1. During some of
our creative weeks the pupils may work in
multi-age groups across different areas of the
school. Reception children follow the Early
Years Foundation Curriculum for Under 5s, which
involve them in child-initiated activities as
well as more formal work. As the year progresses
the children then begin to follow the Programmes
of Study from the National Curriculum.
Throughout KS1 and KS2 many of the classes split
the children into ability groupings for the
teaching of English and Maths. This type of
group work enables staff to target work to meet
the needs of the children. This means that
children will from time to time be taught by a
member of staff other than their class
teacher. All teachers within the school hold
specialist knowledge in a particular subject
area. These skills are used to benefit all
children by teachers training their colleagues
and taking classes other than their own within
the school. We currently have specialist
teachers in the areas of modern foreign
languages, PE, Music and Art. Policies There
are policy documents in all areas of the
curriculum, copies of which are held in the
office. Parents may consult these at any time.
Assessment A Foundation Stage Profile
Assessment is made at the end of Reception Year.
All children will be assessed at the ages of 7
and 11. This assessment will be carried out by
your child's class teacher using national tests
issued by the DFE. Parents will receive a full
report of the results at the time their child
reaches this stage. Teachers will be using the
Assessing Pupil Progress materials from the DFE
in order to make assessments throughout the year.

Sickness and Emergencies
  • Medicines in School
  • Requests for medicine to be administered in
    school must be made to the school office and will
    be considered by the Headteacher or school
    administrator. This relates ONLY to prescribed
    medicines. They should be handed in to the school
    office with clear written instructions on their
    administration to the child. A written form must
    be completed before prescribed medicines can be
    given. Medicines must be collected by an adult at
    the end of the day. Parents are most welcome to
    come to school to administer medicine to their
    own child.
  • The child is responsible for going to the office
    for their medicine at the appropriate time. The
    fact that the medicine has been administered will
    be recorded in the medicine log book.
  • Asthma
  • Inhalers are kept in the medical room. They may
    use them whenever necessary and the child must be
    capable of self-administration. Inhalers are also
    taken with the children on outside school trips
    etc.
  • Advice from parents and medical officers is
    followed closely to ensure school meets the needs
    of the child
  • Medicals
  • The School Nurse visits the school occasionally
    to undertake health checks. Children will be
    given regular assessments in accordance with
    Health Authority Guidelines.
  • Headlice
  • Occasionally there are children with headlice in
    school. The school follows the policy guidance
    set out by the Health Authority and LEA.
  • Illness
  • If your child becomes ill in school we will try
    to contact you or a nominated person. Please
    ensure you notify the school office of any change
    of telephone numbers for the above reason. If
    your child has been ill please ensure that he/she
    is perfectly well before returning to school. We
    request that a child does not attend school for
    the first few days during a course of
    antibiotics, unless a Doctor advises otherwise.
    If a child has a minor accident in school i.e. a
    graze, then he/she will be attended by a member
    of staff trained in First Aid. If there has been
    a minor bump to the head, a written note will be
    put in the childs book bag to be taken home.
  • Please note that a child must not return to
    school until 48 hours after the last occurrence
    of any sickness or diarrhoea.

Oakley C of E Combined SchoolAccess to school
for disabled pupils
  • Definition of Disability
  • A person has a disability if he or she has a
    physical or mental impairment that has a
    substantial
  • and long term adverse affect on his or her
    ability to carry out normal day to day activities
  • The situation as of Summer 2007
  • The size and layout of areas including all
    academic, sporting, play, classrooms, hall,
    computer
  • suite and library areas allow access for all
    pupils. There is an upstairs classroom
  • which would prove impossible to access for a
    child in a wheel chair however provision to
  • access the curriculum is referred to later in
    this document. The conservatory is small but
  • accessible by wheelchair. Classrooms have large
    carpeted areas to reduce background noise for
  • pupils with hearing impairment. Our Teaching
    Assistants are encouraged to attend
  • training to support disabled children as
    necessary
  • Access to the physical environment of the school
  • The main access to the building for children is
    via the playground door. This has a slope/ramp
  • for wheelchair users and is edged in white. The
    front door to school via the car park can be
  • opened to a double width for easy access and can
    be negotiated by wheelchair users over an 11cm
    step.
  • A toilet with facilities for the disabled was
    built in 2002. This includes a wash hand basin
    with Push taps, grab hand rails and emergency
    pull cord. There is sufficient room to
    accommodate a commode.
  • There are no shower facilities.
  • All downstairs classrooms have a fire exit with
    an 11cm step.
  • The computer suite has sufficient space to
    accommodate a wheelchair at the end of the middle
    pier. The fire escape through the adjoining
    conservatory also has an 11cm step.
