Welcome to Oakthorpe Primary School!
We have many clubs available to our children throughout the year as we believe in offering a wide range of opportunities to our pupils. For example we run varied sports clubs such as cross country and football, an art club, wildlife club, games club and a homework club. We do vary clubs to offer as wide a variety as possible so check newsletters for updates!
We have a valuable school council who represent Oakthorpe pupil views. The school council make an important contribution to how we run the school and collect opinions from the children about things we do. This includes policies, how we change the school environment, what clubs we run and even our aims and school motto. At Oakthorpe the views of our children really matter and in March 2015 we were regional finalists for the DFE Character Awards! We encourage children to take an active part in everything so if you call us at lunch-time expect to speak to our professional receptionists!
