Welcome to our web site!

I have been Head Teacher since June 2007 and quickly came to realise that Christ Church is a very special place. The school is bright and welcoming, and the children are very friendly and hard working. The staff enjoy coming to work and there is a lot of laughter in the school.

Christ Church is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School in the centre of Oldbury in the West Midlands. We have 8 classes from Nursery through to Year 6. The school has a reputation for having a welcoming, caring family atmosphere and our staff know the pupils and their families well.

Being a Church of England Voluntary Aided school means that the Diocese of Birmingham owns our buildings and governing body has the majority of its members appointed by the diocese. In this way the school retains its Christian character. We are part of Sandwell Local Education Authority.

In practice, we are a school with Christian roots, and we have Christian assemblies often led by Rev Canon John Barnett our vicar. We say grace before lunch and end each day with the school prayer. Many of our families chose our school because of its church status and we have a large number of Muslim and Seikh pupils.

I hope you enjoy looking at our website, and that you get a flavour of our school. Please get in touch if you have any questions or there are comments you would like to make.

About As

The school is located in the centre of Oldbury and has close links with Christ Church, Oldbury. As a Church of England Voluntary Aided school, the buildings and land are owned by Birmingham diocese, however the staff are employed by the Governing Body on behalf of Sandwell MBC.

We are proud of our school site with its large playing field and multi-use games area. The school building is well maintained, bright and welcoming.  Classrooms have an interactive whiteboard and we have an ICT suite and library, which are both well used.

We have good links with secondary schools in the area and pupils are well prepared for their transfer to secondary schools. We have 8 classes from Nursery through to Year 6. We also have a number of Learning Support Practitioners who work alongside teachers in the classrooms.

In common with all maintained schools in the country, we base our teaching on the National Curriculum, the agreed syllabus for RE and National Strategies for Literacy and Numeracy. Pupils in nursery and reception are in the Foundation Stage and follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum. All pupils are assessed throughout the year and the Foundation Stage Profile is completed for each child.

Pupils in Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2) follow the National Curriculum and National Strategies for Literacy and Numeracy. RE and PSHE are also taught. Much of the curriculum is taught through well planned and structured themes or topics. Pupils in Year 2 are assessed towards the end of the year and are given levels for reading, writing, spelling, maths and science.

Pupils in Key Stage Two (Years 3—6) also follow the National Curriculum and National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies. RE and PSHE are also taught. Pupils are tested each year to see how they are progressing, and teachers assess progress frequently. All pupils are given targets to work towards. Year 6 pupils do SAT Tests in May, and levels are given for reading, writing, maths and science.
