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.
Mrs Michaela Long
