Oaks Primary Academy provides a daily wrap around care for pupils in the form of a Breakfast Club and an after-school care.
Breakfast Club is open from 8:00am till the beginning of the school day at 8:45am, with all children who attend the school being welcome. The cost is 75p a day or Â£3.00 a week.
The club includes a healthy breakfast for all pupils who attend, and the food is available via self-service in order to help encourage independence for the children. There are many different daily variationsÂ of food available at Breakfast Club, ranging from toast, cereal, fresh fruit, fruit juice and yoghurts. Also there is a selection of hot food on offer, including crumpets, beans/spaghetti, cheese and ham toasties, eggy bread and pancakes available on certain days.
In addition, children can play, socialise and weather permitting use the outside space.
According to recent government studiesÂ having a good breakfast results in a positive impact on punctuality, academic results, concentration, behaviour and attainment.
Also if you have any questions regarding Breakfast Club then please come into the school office.
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 pupilsâ€™ interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
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.
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 pupilsâ€™ good achievement in reading.
