Just Love Reading!
Here at Oxley Park Academy, we put reading at the heart of everything we do. We recognise that being able to read opens every door for learning and life experiences. Reading at Oxley Park is unique! We want it to be fun, exciting and inspiring to choose and read a book - no matter where you are in our academy. Welcome to 'Just Love Reading!', our vision for reading in everyday life. Children can sit back and enjoy a book in the bath, at the hairdressers, in the garden, in bed, in the lounge or chilled out in the coffee shop! We hope you love our reading journey as much as we do!
Time to lay down or cuddle up on the sofa in front of the fire and enjoy your book! No need for TV, game consoles or iPads, just a sofa, rug and a great book!
The perfect place to enjoy an exciting story, in bed! Either all cuddled up reading by yourself under the cover with a torch or laying back while someone reads a lovely bedtime story. You can have either here at Oxley Park!
Time to get outside and take in the natural surrounds while enjoying your favourite book. You can do this in all weathers at Oxley Park Academy, as we have a reading garden inside!
Yes, that's right, we have a hairdressers in our library! The perfect place to sit back and enjoy your favourite comic, magazine or newspaper! A popular place to find children and adults!
The best thing after a long day - a lovely hot bubble bath, chill out and relax with a good book! Yes, you've got it - we have a bath in our library! Why there isn't one in every library in the country is the question!
Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and show high levels of respect, both towards each other and to staff. (Ofsted)
My children enjoy attending each day. They find the work challenging and interesting. They really like the teaching staff and feel supported and have grown in confidence.
Working at Oxley is so special and unique. Everyone is so kind, well-being is at the forefront and our community are a delight. I love my job! (Teacher)
The school missions and values make my son want to be a part of the Academy and try his best. I feel proud that my sons are at Oxley Park and the Nursery and I feel that the changes being made are really positive!
The children are oozing with so much more ‘zest’ since the start of this year, which makes us as parents happier and excited about their future at OPA.
My children love the school! My eldest was quiet, didn’t want to learn, didn’t enjoy school. Now he is settled, has friends and has started to show improvements. My daughter loves her teachers and is extremely enthusiastic.
