Oakley Church of England Combined School acknowledges the Christian Ethic at the root of our society. Each individual in the school community has a sense of being valued and of seeking standards of excellence in whatever they do. This underlies the following principle: the fostering of spiritual and moral awareness and a growing understanding of other religions and cultural groups within a multicultural society; the provision of a lively, structured and caring atmosphere; the building of strong links among staff parents, governors, church and wider village communities.
Our School Prayer
On this day we thank you for the blessings you have given to us.
May we each be responsible, generous, committed and respectful to one another.
Let our friendships blossom with kindness and honesty,
Although we know this may be hard.
Please give us the courage and perseverance to achieve our goals,
As we give thanks for the support from our parents and teachers
For all our enterprises.
And let everyone have love and hope to guide them on the path ahead,
Whatever the future may bring.
