Welcome to English Martyrs CVA, Oakham
Welcome to the English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy website. We are a small Voluntary Aided Catholic Academy with 144 children aged between 4 - 11 yrs old on roll. We are part of the St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi Academy Trust together with 13 other primary schools and two secondary schools across Lincolnshire. We are happy to welcome children of any faith or none to join us in our friendly school.
We are very proud of our school and we enjoy being part of an active and friendly community. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum setting high expectations and encouraging all our children to achieve their potential before leaving us in year 6. Our mission statement below explains how we want our children to lead their lives, and our school values of excellence, determination, respect, equality, friendship, courage and inspiration help them to achieve this.
We would welcome you visiting us before you decide to join us to ensure that you are making the best decision for your child. For the latest news please see the tab marked 'news' and also take a look at the weekly school newsletter.
“ We grow and learn as a family in the footsteps of Jesus.”
Update 11th May 2020
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister, we expect to receive further clarification from the DfE to allow us to plan for the phased reopening of the school. We will notify you when these plans are confirmed. School arrangements remain as they have been in previous weeks. The Prime Minister’s address yesterday has not changed the current position that schools are open to vulnerable pupils and children of key workers only and at this time the critical worker list has not changed.
