Welcome to Kings Oak Primary Learning Centre.  We are proud to be an Ofsted Outstanding school at the heart of a community that is passionate about educating young people.  Our centre strives to provide the best opportunities to support the development of every child from three to eleven and promotes learning for everyone for life. We believe in forming strong partnerships with our community and providing an excellent service to enable every family and young person with the greatest opportunity to improve their life chances. We are committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing to all pupils, their families, staff and governors. We hope your child will be happy, safe, achieve and enjoy the time they are with us in our Centre and that our children become well-rounded citizens in our community and the wider world. We aim to provide first quality learning and teaching experiences, through a creative curriculum, for your child to ensure they are equipped with the vital skills, knowledge and understanding to live in a forever changing world.

We welcome your cooperation in providing your child with every advantage for development within school and value parental support. Positive relationships are the key to success.

If anyone has any cause for concern about a child’s welfare or progress, we aim as soon as possible to work together with the appropriate agencies to secure your child's well-being.

We feel privileged to be the headteachers of Kings Oak Primary Learning Centre and be entrusted with your children. The team at Kings Oak Primary Learning Centre are committed to ensuring your child receives the best all-around education possible.

Family Reading07Mar2024

8:40 am - 9:00 am

Family Reading is back!! Family Reading is to take place on Thursday mornings starting on 14th September. We encourage as many parents, carers and grandparents to come in to school to enjoy a book with the children for the first 20 minutes of the day/session (8.40-9.00am for most families). Please come along to read to your little one and their friends – it could be a story book, a quiz, some poetry or a magazine. Every week, we will put the children’s names are into a hat and a prize of a book and chocolates can be won. If you have more than one child, simply pick a classroom and take all the children along together. Don’t worry if you’re a parent who works on Wednesday morning, as at the end of each term we will do a special prize draw for all the children who read regularly with parents at home and who fill in their reading records.

World Book Day07Mar2024

This year, we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. Our reading ambassadors have voted for children to dress up as their favourite book character for the day if they wish. We would love to see homemade costumes and do not expect parents to go to the expense of buying new costumes. Children will take part in reading themed activities throughout the day. Please see attached with some further dressing up ideas for parents.

Morning Nursery Mother's Day Celebration08Mar2024

10:45 am - 11:30 am @ Nursery

We would love to invite you to our Mother’s Day event on Friday 8th March. The children will sing a Mother’s Day song which they have learned in their class and there will then be different activities you can do across the department with your child. As always, any relative is invited to come to this event whether that be a Mum, Aunty, Nanna or any other family member. Timings for the event are as follows; 10:45am-11:30am – Morning Nursery children only (based in Nursery). 2:30pm-3:15pm – Afternoon Nursery children, 30 hours children and both FS2 classes (Mr. Lovatt and Miss. Pearce). The afternoon session will be based in the FS classrooms and outside depending on the weather. Entrance is by the Nursery gate for all adults that attend and the gate from the car park side of school will be open (please note that entrance from Hough Lane won’t be opened). Please let your child’s class teacher know if an adult is attending prior to the 8th March so we can plan accordingly. Thank you for your support as always, Foundation Stage Team
