Oak Green takes pride in being a nurturing environment. Part of ensuring that children are safe, happy and ready to learn is the availability of additional support in the form of nurture groups. At Oak Green, we are incredibly lucky to have a trained Theraplay therapist. Theraplay’s goal is to enhance attachment, self esteem, trust in others and joyful engagement. Theraplay sessions are fun, physical, personal and interactive and replicate the natural, healthy interaction between a child and his/her parent. We also have a self-esteem building project called The Acorn Club. The aim of Acorn Club is to help children to gain confidence and transfer this back into the classroom. At the current time, Acorn Club is open to children in year one. Oak Green also runs nurture groups for children across all year groups. The aims of these sessions are to develop social skills and confidence. Issues that arise as part of everyday school life are discussed by the group, and the children support each other in finding solutions to any challenges that may arise.
At Oak Green School, we believe part of being ready to learn is also shown in our appearance. Children are expected to wear the following uniform to school:
School Uniform (Reception through to Year 6)
White shirt/polo shirt White shirt/polo shirt/blouse

We are respectful of religious practices and allow the hijab to be worn in school but not the niqab that restricts communication which can inhibit learning.
All clothing must be clearly labelled with your child’s name
Organisation of the school day
Staff are on duty from 8.45am. Children should not arrive on the school premises before this time, unless they are attending Breakfast Club. The outer gates are locked at 9.00am. All latecomers must go to the main office reception. Children have a mid- morning break as well as a break at lunchtime. KS1 also have a break in the afternoon. The school day finishes at 3:15pm for reception, KS1 and KS2 children.
Jungle and Rainbow nursery sessions are 3 hours long. Morning sessions are from 8.45-11.45 and afternoon sessions run from 12.15-3.15.
We endeavour to ensure that the school is a safe place for children but accidents do happen. In the event of your child having an accident, we will treat all minor injuries by cleaning or applying a cold compress. We can also administer emergency aid in the event of a more serious injury.
If your child has an injury and we are concerned that they need further treatment, we will always contact you and ask you to come to school. If we can not contact you and we feel that your child will need treatment, we will call an ambulance to take the child to hospital and continue trying to contact you.
It is essential that you keep your contact numbers up to date.
The school does not administer medicine but on very special occasions the administration of medicine is permitted during the school day. An Authorisation Form is available from the school office. If your child has an infectious illness, there are set exclusion times. If your child has head lice, please treat this immediately.
NON SMOKING POLICY
This applies to the whole school and grounds both in and out of school hours.
