Introducing the Virtual School Library!

Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch our Virtual School Library to keep children reading during lockdown.

Every week, a popular children's author will become our ‘Author of the Week’ and provide a free book or audiobook and exclusive videos and activities aimed at primary school children, all available at library.thenational.academy.

Our first Author of the Week is Dame Jacqueline Wilson DBE, who talks about how her infamous character Tracy Beaker got her name, offers exclusive activities and recommends her top reads to check out. The Story of Tracy Beaker is also available to read for free for a week. Spread the word!

Don’t miss our Children’s Mental Health Week Virtual Assembly

Oak National Academy has teamed up with charities Place2Be and BAFTA Kids to create a free assembly for Children's Mental Health Week 2021, celebrating this year’s theme of “Express Yourself”.

Set your reminders for 9am on Monday 1st February and spread the word as Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and CBBC Presenter Rhys Stephenson host the assembly alongside some other special well-known faces…!

The assembly will be available on demand if you aren't able to make it at this time.

Available to all learning at home or at school, we’re bringing the nation's children together (virtually!) with a positive message about the power of creative self-expression.
