Not only was everyone fantastic with how well they did with their activities, but also a huge congratulations and thank you is in order for how much the school raised, with a whopping £250 being collected! Well done everybody!

A huge congratulations to the team who have been performing extremely well over the last few weeks. Well Done!
During the Winter term, the football team for Oaks Primary Academy has been extremely successful and deserves a huge amount of praise for their efforts. This term, the team has played against Molehill Primary Academy on 22nd February 2018, which Oaks won 7 – 0. The team played absolutely amazing, well done!
Then on 23rd February 2018, Oaks Primary Academy also competed in the U11 National Football League competition at Maidstone United’s Gallagher Stadium. The team performed really well, but was unfortunately knocked out in the round robin stage of the competition.
Finally on 6th March 2018, Oaks also played against Loose Primary School, which ended with Oaks again being victorious; this time with a 5 – 1 victory. The team again played fantastically, and importantly displayed exceptionally good teamwork with one another!
On Tuesday 5th December, children from Years 3 and 4 at Oaks Primary Academy attended the Maidstone Schools Multiskills Festival involving 11 other teams. The children participated in 11 stations using skills they have learnt in their PE lessons during the Year. Sports Leaders from the local secondary school kept score for each school and at the end of the morning the final scores were announced. OPA were the winners. An inspiring example of team work. Well done!
OPA took part in the qualifying round of the Maidstone Schools Basketball Festival on the 8th November competing against 7 other local schools. After winning all matches bar one, they earnt their place through to the overall final which took place on Wednesday 29 November. Playing a further 5 matches they reached the final and lost a very close match. For such a small school it is a major achievement and we are very proud of our team.
Well done Robbie, Richie, Tyrone, Ashley, Lacy-May, Chandanan and Awa!
In P.E., year 4 have been taking part in dancing lessons by using the game “Just Dance”. They have all been working very hard to keep up with all the dance moves and overall doing a really fantastic job. Well Done!
With the Mason Mile Challenge soon arriving on the 21st October, Mrs Palmer has been taking the children off site to practise their running. They have all been doing an amazing job, and they’re all getting very well prepared!
On Monday 2nd October Oaks Primary Academy attended the above tournament at New Line Learning competing against 6 other schools. They scored some fantastic goals and performed as a team and finished 3rd overall which was a very well deserved result.
On Wednesday 27th September, it was National Fitness Day and Oaks Primary Academy accepted the challenge. The whole school took part in a 15 minute aerobic session outside on the playground with the staff and even Dolly morphing into Jane Fonda! During the day on the half past the hour, a bell would go and all children would put down their work and exercise for 1 minute before continuing on with their learning. Fitness challenges were also set up on the playground at lunchtime.
Between 18th – 22nd September, all the children have had the opportunity to work out live with Joe Wicks, The Body Coach with the aim to help encourage all children in primary school to participate in physical activity every day.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.Ofsted
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.Ofsted
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.Ofsted
