At Oxford Prime Academy, your child is able to start education from the age of 4 onwards in Reception groups. The first year at school is an invaluable start to learning and serves as a preparation springboard for the first grade (Year 1).
Reception groups function as Nurseries which help children to grow and develop in many different ways. Firstly, they help children to socialise and meet both other children and adults. Secondly, they help children to learn through play and games. Finally, nurseries help children to become more independent to think for themselves and make decisions. Away from their home, they learn and discover lots of other things.
Starting at 4 years old, children begin a literacy and numeracy programme and take part in a wide range of creative, sporting, musical, indoor and outdoor activities. The children enjoy a large variety of educational and play equipment, which allows your son or daughter to develop and learn at their own pace. Being exposed to English all day long entails fast development of English listening and speaking skills.
Pupils are taught by enthusiastic, qualified staff who care for them as individuals and encourage them to develop to their full potential.
Our very attractive bright and airy classrooms and small groups provide a perfect learning environment for the children. Our learners are looking forward to returning to school since they are enjoying here so much with plethora of equipment spread around, such as Lego, toys, puzzles, boardgames, crayons, paint, sand, paper and glue.
There are no marks and homework at Reception level, however, the children’s progress is traced and the parents can always learn about it.
Every morning starts with Ethics where pupils are encouraged to understand, be interested in and show respect to others, whilst also developing their own self esteem. Bullying is an issue which the school takes seriously. We have in place a school "anti-bullying policy" to avoid any incidents as our teachers always keep a watch on the younger children at playtimes. The idea is to make sure that all the children are safe and happy when they are on the school site.
