Prayer Walk - March 2015

On the morning of Wednesday 25th March,  27 children volunteered to go on a prayer walk around the village as part of the Lent Challenge set by Bishop Stephen. We were joined by Reverend Furlong, staff and parents too. Each child had the opportunity to say a prayer at different stations along the walk. We have been thinking about our school community and beyond this week in assembly and the prayer walk was a completion of our Lent focus.

Parent Questionnaire - 2015

We would like to ask all parents some important questions regarding life at Barnabas Oley. The Governors of the school have put together a questionnaire for all parents to complete.  This year, our questions are based around our Vision and Values for our school.

We value your thoughts and opinions on our school and your responses help us to shape policy and practice.

Please complete our online survey here.

Spelling Bee 2015

Following on from last year’s successful Spelling Bee, we will be running it again later in the summer term. Initially we will be holding a class spelling bee in the final week of the spring term w/c 23rd March in order to find out the house teams.

Please click here to view the spelling words for all year groups for the children to learn and practice. The words come directly from the new National Curriculum for KS2 and from the Phonics Programme for FS/KS1. All children will take part in the spelling bee as it is a helpful way of checking these words. One winner from each year group for each house will be selected and the house teams will be announced at the beginning of the summer term, along with further details about the spelling bee final.

Further to the National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) carried out in school on Monday 10th March 2014, we are extremely pleased to announce that our school was judged to be Outstanding in all categories. The overall judgement relates to the distinctiveness and effectiveness of our school as a Church school. For further information and to view the full SIAMS Report, please click here.

We are very pleased to be able to share our Ofsted report with you.

The inspection team found us to be a “good“ school in all categories. Please view Ofsted's report here.
