Our school is part of Oakley Campus which includes Inzievar Nursery and Primary School, the Community Library and Holy Name RC Primary School. The new building was opened in February 2007.
It is a co-educational, non-denominational school and one of two primary schools in the village of Oakley. The aspect of the school is enhanced by surrounding gardens and woodlands which are regularly utilised by both the nursery and primary children.
The main building has 9 classrooms housing Primary 1-7 children. The nursery wing has two main rooms allowing enrolment for 50 3/4yrs old children, morning and afternoon. The gym/games hall, assembly hall and dining hall are shared areas and within the Inzievar wing an ICT suite, music room, and tutorial areas are available. A lounge area is used for shared activities and by parents.
A controlled entry system operates on our external doors and internally the doors are controlled by electronic keys.
Our aim is to be a warm, welcoming school working in partnership with the pupils, their families and the wider community to build pride in the school identity through the celebration of pupil achievement and the encouragement of positive behaviour.
Our visiting specialist teachers in Music, Drama, P.E. and Art enhance the Expressive Arts curriculum. Pupils from P4have the opportunity of being taught to play cello with Mrs Ritchie and from Primary 5 they can learn to play guitar and penny whistle with Mr. Lees.
Our Parent Teacher Association is very active within the school organising many fundraising events to help fund extra school activities. The Pupil Council meets regularly to discuss concerns and issues raised by the pupils through Class meetings. Each class elects two Pupil Councillors and two Eco-Councillors to represent them at meetings. We gained our Bronze eco award in September 2009 and are now making great efforts to gain our Silver award.
Primary Seven children contribute to the school in practical ways such as leading the school Houses of Osprey, Falcon, Kestrel and Eagle, acting as Junior Road Safety Officers and Monitors undertaking a variety of duties.
A residential programme at Ardroy Outdoor Centre is offered to P6 Pupils and Primary Seven have a week's programme of Activities in the final term. Our extracurricular programme includes a range of sports activities including football, dance, basketball and a multi-activity club. The school also participates in Rotary Club quizes, Sports Events, and festivals.
