Little People Dream BIG!
Welcome to Reception
Our Reception classes
Welcome to Reception! If you have not been a 'villager' in our Nursery Village, this is the start of your learning journey at Oxley Park Academy. We do everything to make this special, warm, safe and secure for both our children and their families. This is a big time for any family and we want it to be really special.
Settling our children in and making sure they love coming to school is something we truly pride ourselves in, along with reassuring our parents that their little one is in good hands!
The Dream journey is all about having 'Dreams' for the big world we are in. Early reading is key as is making sure every individual child is sufficiently developed in order to start the national curriculum in their next chapter, which is Believe - Key Stage 1.

Pupils simply love their school! Ofsted 2022
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.
