Welcome to Oaklands Primary School’s website, I hope that you find it informative and interesting.
Oaklands is an outward looking, aspirational one-form entry primary school in Hertfordshire. The school provides a caring, positive, challenging and stimulating curriculum that encourages all children to grow as individuals and to aspire to be the best that they can be. Our core values of kindness, honesty and respect underpin everything that we expect from our school community.
We aim to inspire every child, regardless of any barriers to learning, to engage in the learning journey. We are highly inclusive in our approach (but are always looking for further ways to improve). We teach children to make brave decisions, self-regulate and to have high aspirations for their future impact on the world.
Our core values are entwined with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and our British Values. They are taught within and alongside the International Primary Curriculum and our assembly programme. Our knowledge and skill-rich curriculum, with its global elements, allows us to show children that their one voice can make a difference to the ever-changing world. It allows them to see themselves not just as local citizens but also as global citizens. By teaching them about people who have made a difference in the fields of the humanities, medicine, science, maths, the environment, engineering and beyond we hope to equip them with the skills to be lifelong learners and influencers of positive change.
We all know how quickly children grow up and at Oaklands we strive to ensure that their time with us is full of awe, wonder and inspiration, remembering that whilst it is our responsibility to prepare them for the future, they are still children today.
