Children’s University at Oakwood Primary School

What exactly is the Children's University?

It's an organisation which signposts you to exciting learning activities which take place outside the normal school day - it could be before school, during lunchtime, after school, during weekends or holidays etc. The activities are all voluntary, it is up to you to choose what you do and when, and the learning always has a link to something you could go on to do at a 'grown up' university.


The places that offer CU approved learning activities are given the title of Children's University Learning Destination and they will visibly display the black and gold Learning Destination poster. At Oakwood this means that all the clubs you attend have been approved by the Children’s University representative from the Local Authority.

How will I know when I have collected enough hours for a certificate?

Your school co-ordinator will check your Passport To Learning and tell you when the next set of certificates will be handed out. For your bronze level certificate, you will need 30 hours, 65 hours for silver and 100 hours for gold. If you have completed your gold level you may have the chance to be presented with your certificate at a special graduation ceremony organised by your local Children's University.

What does it all cost?

All of the clubs run by school staff are free. However some of the clubs run by external coaches in school do have a session fee. Please see the termly club list for details. The usual charges will apply for public clubs and places of interest.

Mrs Lisa Darcy is our Children’s University Co-ordinator at Oakwood. She is a member of our Local Advisory Board.
