Budget Cuts

Dear Parents and Friends of Oakgrove,

I am sure you are aware of the devastating cuts proposed to the education budget. These cuts will have a significant impact on the education of our children.

The estimated reduction of more than £77,000 to our current very tight budget will mean:

  • Staffing cuts
  • Possible increase to class sizes (currently 30 in most year groups)
  • Possible  reduction or loss of Nurture Centre support

Please download and sign the  letter on this webpage in support of our opposition to the proposed drastic cuts to the education budget.

Address the  letter to your local MLA/councillor, sign it and return to the school by this Thursday 18 Dec. We will send a copy of your letter to the Department of Education to support our protest.

**If you prefer to send online (saving postage etc.) use links below or go to budgetconsultation@deni.gov.uk .

Please encourage others to show their support for our children. The budget consultation closes 29 December so make sure this is at the top of your Christmas to do list.

Thank you for all your support

Mrs. Larraine Coulter

Celebrating Diversity, Learning Together for Life

Welcome to the Oakgrove Integrated Nursery and Primary School website. Our core business is 'Learning Together for Life' in an atmosphere which celebrates the diverse society in which we live. We hope our website reflects that and gives you information about all aspects of our school community including access to our school prospectus, curriculum information, policies, extra curricular activities, parent and community links. It will give current news and will provide you with links to other related sites.
For the children, there are class pages where their work is displayed and activities, which will support their learning, available for them to access. We hope you find our website enjoyable, accessible and useful.

Larraine Coulter

Our Aim at Oakgrove

At Oakgrove Integrated Nursery and Primary School our purpose is learning together for life and celebrating diversity.  We aim to provide child centred education in an integrated environment, where families and the wider community are involved.  We are an integrated learning community which seeks to learn together, of and from one another, regardless of creed, race, gender or ability.

At Oakgrove we are keen to challenge our children and staff and the rest of our school community.  We have an ethos, within the school where we embrace difference and celebrate diversity.  Exposure to as a wide a variety of experiences and challenges is what helps children, staff, families and ultimately our communities to grow.  As an integrated school, a school which teaches children of all creeds, race, gender and ability, we want to lead the way for education in Northern Ireland.  94% of the children in our country are educated in a school system where their peers are of the same religion.  As an integrated school we want to challenge this, on a local and global level.
