THANK YOU!

A great big thank you to all our parents and carers for attending Parents’ Evening on Tuesday, it was wonderful to welcome families back in to school. 

Parents’ Evening

Spring term parents’ evening will be on Tuesday 5th April from 3.30pm. Parents will be able to book a time slot to meet with their child’s teacher. Further information will be sent out via the school app. 

World Book Day 2022

We are really looking forward to celebrating world book day on Thursday 3rd March. Our teachers have been busy planning exciting and engaging activities to inspire a love for reading. We have guest readers calling in throughout the day and staff and children are encouraged to bring their favourite books to school to share with their classes. 

We would love parents and families to take part on this day by sharing their favourite books with us too, tag us on Twitter @oli_primary.

Reading is huge part of our curriculum and many of the national curriculum subjects are taught using a quality text approach, we firmly believe that learning to read and developing a love of reading is our number one job!

World book day is the perfect reason for us to read, read and read some more!

Holy Communions

We couldn’t have wished for better weather today as our Yr 4 children make their Holy Communion. Fr Richard celebrated two masses, the first in Our Lady Immaculate at midday and the second at St Anthony’s. The children and their families have been preparing for months (with the help of Mrs Shepherd) to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion. Mrs Sergeant and all the staff would like to thank Fr Richard and Mrs Shepherd for the support they have given in helping make today such a special occasion for our children.

Welcome back!

Today we welcomed faces old and new, lovely to see so many children back and ready to learn and truly delighted to welcome new children in to our school family. The Spring term is always a busy one so daily attendance is essential, lets aim for 100%!
