'There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky.
And you ask, "What if I fall?" Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?'
Welcome to our school...
Ore Village Primary Academy is a happy, vibrant school that always has children at its heart. We are extremely lucky to have an amazing team of people supporting the development of all our pupils and helping them to be the very best that they can.
Our vision for the pupils at Ore Village Primary Academy is reflected in our ORE acronym:
Opportunities. Resilience. Expanding Minds.

Welcome Back to Term 6 - Monday 7 June 2021
Our whole school topic for Term 6 is 'On Our Doorstep' where we will be exploring the philosophical concepts - reality, beauty and equality within our local area. Our youngest pupils, in EYFS, will journey from 'Coast to Country' as they ask: What is good about living by the sea? Years 1 & 2 will be learning about living things and their habitats in their topic, 'From the Sea to the Sky'. Their enquiry question is: Do seagulls have a right to live in Hastings? In Years 3 & 4, the pupils are learning all about 'Smugglers' and whether it is ever ok to break the rules. It's all about 'Hastings at War' in Years 5 & 6 where we ask: 'Is it beneficial to be by the coast during a war?'
There are some wonderful opportunities planned for Term 6. All pupils will be venturing off-site for an educational trip linked to their topic and there is a fully-funded one-night residential visit for Year 5 and Year 6. The running track has been marked out on the field, in preparation for athletics activities and phase sports days. We will be sharing our plans for delivering age-appropriate Relationships and Health Education with a focus on mental and physical health. Forest School continues for our Year 1 & 2 pupils. During the week beginning 5 July, all the children will be spending a week with their new teachers and our Year 6 pupils will be venturing to their secondary schools. Time has been invested in transition, to support everyone getting ready for the next academic year and to ease the worry that can come with change. Our new nursery and reception pupils will be joining us, to see what coming to school is all about. The term will conclude on Wednesday 21 July with some wonderful goodbyes to pupils moving on and celebrations of all we have achieved in a very turbulent year.
It is going to be a fabulous 6 weeks and 3 days of learning and laughter!
Just in case you missed it.....this is what we got up to in Term 5.
