  • Rock Steady at OWPS

    Published 10/05/24

    As you know, we have had a long and successful relationship with Rock Steady and have all enjoyed the concerts that the children put on for the rest of the school each term. This term will be our last term with Rock Steady and we would like to thank Laura and the rest of the Rock Steady team for their hard work over the last few years. We are looking forward to seeing one more concert after half-term - I'm sure it will be a memorable one. 

    Information will be sent out to families soon on alternative music tuition we will be offering in the next academic year, through peripatetic teachers. We are hoping to offer a range of instruments, some will be group lessons and some individual. More information coming soon!

  • School Census- Thursday 16th May 2024

    Next Thursday 16th May is Census Day. This is an important day for schools across the country as we have to submit data to the government. This data helps them to decide how much funding we should have next financial year.  

    We would like each child to have a school dinner on this day if at all possible, as it would assist the school with gaining this important funding.  

    Please contact the School Office if you have any questions or any concerns with the menu, and we will see if we can resolve them. 


    Thursday 16th May Dinner Menu 

    Main course: Sausage Roll or

                           Cheese and Tomato Pizza (V) (Change to menu) 

    Pudding: Chocolate Chip Sponge and custard

  • Yr3 Assembly - 8th May

    Published 10/05/24

    Year 3 did a fantastic job in showcasing what they have learnt during the summer term so far, to both parents and the whole school, in their assembly this week. The children did a brilliant job in speaking their lines loudly and clearly, and performed a play all about King Henry VIII and his wives in a 'This is Your Life@ game show style. They also all sung excellently to the catchy song 'Divorced, Beheaded, Died'!

    Thank you to all the adults who came to watch the performance. We hope you enjoyed it.
