We believe that every child at Oaklands Primary School has the opportunity to achieve their full potential in every aspect of learning, whilst enjoying school life to the full.
We provide a positive, caring and stimulating environment which encourages all individuals to take on challenges and strive to be the best that they can.
Our creative curriculum provides memorable and meaningful learning experiences and encourages the children to become confident, independent and resilient learners, who dare to take risks and try out new ideas.
We prepare our children for the future by developing a strong understanding of community and the different cultures and faiths that belong to it.
Above all, we seek to cultivate a generation of enquiring, technologically aware and creative children who enjoy learning, achieve their potential and can use their talents in their future world.
Mrs Julie Petitt
‘Oaklands provides a good quality of education. Pupils are well taught and show a positive and enthusiastic approach to learning, and as a result they make good progress’
