At Oakhurst we see education of children as a partnership between children, staff, parents and governors and we will do our very best to develop this partnership. We hope parents will feel able to support the many aspects of school life.

Children are at the centre of school life and we encourage them to be independent responsible members of the school community. They are encouraged to be caring and thoughtful towards others. The school provides a carefully structured curriculum, which aims to challenge children to work to their full potential.


Following the introduction of the National Curriculum schools were recommended to adopt a standard year classification.

This is as follows:

4 – 5 Years Reception

5 – 6 Years Year 1

6 – 7 Years Year 2

7 – 8 Years Year 3

8 – 9 Years Year 4

This pattern continues in the Middle and Upper Schools.

Children are placed in classes according to their age, maturity, ability and individual need. Some classes have children from one age group while other classes have children from two age groups. In all classes the children’s age and ability influence the work given and the standard of work expected.

For most of the time the children are taught by their class teacher. However, occasionally, another teacher will take a group or class for subjects such as music. As children become more secure and independent they increasingly work with staff that have special knowledge.

If a child has special needs then the parents class teacher and head teacher discuss the matter and, if necessary, consult agencies such as the speech therapist or educational psychologist. These children will be given as much additional support as possible.
