Oxenhope CE Primary School

Welcome from the Head of School – Mrs. Alice Jones

I am thrilled to be leading such a wonderful school, where the children are thoughtful, caring and excited to learn.  Oxenhope Primary School is a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment that offers a sense of belonging and I feel it is an honour to be in a position to serve a community where family and faith are at its heart.

We are innovative, aspirational and consistent in our approach, constantly reflecting on our practice. We are driven to make learning creative, stimulating, inclusive and fun with lots of challenge, setting ambitious goals for the future.

We view our school as a family and we pride ourselves that we know each and every child inside and out.  We do our best to help each child find their strengths and talents so that they will flourish and be challenged.  Teaching allows us to make difference and have a positive impact on children’s lives, which I never take for granted.  My passion is to provide our children with a learning experience which will provide them with the skills to be successful individuals.  I feel that we have a school which balances a rich and varied curriculum with the rigour of high expectations.

One aspect which I believe is crucial to the success of the children is the partnership between the school and the parents.  It is my belief that families are the most important educators of children, therefore we endeavour to make school life feel like an extension of the child’s family.

We strongly believe in the whole child, nurturing social as well as academic skills. We have a curriculum which embeds skills and promotes questioning and a love of learning, which will ensure that each child is fully equipped to take on the world around them.  We know our children will enjoy and flourish as part of the Oxenhope Experience.

We offer our children a vast range of opportunities to light the spark of their learning, giving them the skills and tools they need to take off and fly!
