Matthew 5:14 - 'You are the light of the World.'
At Oakmeadow CE Primary and Nursery School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We value all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these alongside other cultures in our country. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts. Our cross curricular approach provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding whilst developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of our children. The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference. At Oakmeadow, we value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as our school council whose members are voted for by the children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view.
As a Church of England Primary School, we have a clear commitment to promoting a strong Christian ethos within the school. The school has Voluntary Controlled status which means that admission to the school is not dependent on any Christian commitment. We are delighted that the school represents the wide range of different faiths and perspectives of our local community.
Daily acts of worship (assemblies) are held for all children. These acts of worship provide opportunities for children to participate in collective worship and to celebrate work and achievements. The acts of worship are led by the headteacher, members of staff and our Vicar, Rev Hubbard and his team. They will include a wide variety of activities in which children and adults participate. At different times during the year the children will visit our local church to take part in a variety of services including Harvest Festival and a Christmas Carol Concert.
Children are given responsibility across school and are fully involved in all aspects of school life.
