Additional Parking Restrictions - July 2023


We have received notification from Local Authority about parking restrictions proposed in and around the Olton School area. The proposal that may be of most interest is a school keep clear marking (no stopping at any time) to protect the new school entrance on Lyndon Road.

Full details can be found by accessing the link shown below. This shows all of the Council Traffic Orders and the one associated with the area around school can be viewed as you move down the page shown as ‘Olton Primary School Area Phase 2’.

The statutory consultation began on Thursday 20th July and ends on 10th August

Year 4 Multiplication Check and the Phonics Screening Check


We have the last of our statutory assessments taking place week beginning 12th June 2023 with Year 4 having their multiplication check and the Phonics Screening Check being completed with all of our Year 1 children, together with any Year 2 children who are retaking the check. It is really important that the children in these year groups are in school next week so they are able to complete the checks otherwise they will be classed as absent and will not receive a score.

9th -12th May 2023—Year 6 SATs Week .

Our Year 6 children will be completing their SATs between Tuesday and Friday. Some children can be nervous about the tests but they have been preparing for them during their time in Year 6 and have completed practice papers so they are familiar with the layout, question types etc.


Plenty of sleep, a good breakfast and lots of positive encouragement will help them to do their very best which is all we would ever ask from them. Please can we ask you to ensure that they are in school on time each morning.


If in an exceptional circumstance, your child is unable to attend school on one of the days next week, please can you inform us as soon as possible as unless suitable arrangements can be made, this will impact your child’s results.


Year 2 children will complete their SATs tests in the last two weeks before May half-term.


The Year 2 tests are not strictly timed to reduce the pressure in a test situation. There is no set timetable for the Year 2 SATs other than they need to be completed in May.

Anti-Bullying Week 14th-18th November 2022

Through the week, the children have spent time focusing on our anti-bullying work. Daily activities have helped the children to understand that managing conflict is an important part of growing up and that bullying is not simply a 'falling out'. This YouTube clip helps to reinforce this.


In lessons, the children have thought about attributes such as kindness, respect, tolerance and understanding which help the children to be good friends to help avoid issues. We have also discussed what to do if someone is being bullied and different approaches that can help or hinder situations.

What is Bullying - Anti-Bullying Alliance

The Ant-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online. You can find out more at
