"Children live what they learn.........."

and, in our school, we believe that learning is for life. While the learning opportunities children are offered conform to the requirements of the National Curriculum, they go well beyond those basic programmes of study. Skilled and dedicated staff committed to high quality teaching aim to give children a lifelong love of learning as well as equipping them with the skills and knowledge to function effectively in the 21st century.


Looking forward

A school does not stand still. It is a living and growing community of pupils, parents and staff. Each year, as we bid farewell to all those children moving on to Secondary Schools, we welcome around 50 new pupils just embarking on their educational journey.

From time to time, it is necessary to stop, to take stock and to reflect on our aims, our values and the direction we want our school to go. We need to take time to achieve the clarity to know what is really important for our school.

Over the past few months, the staff and Governors have been doing just that. From their meetings, both separately and together, they have arrived at a set of "core principles" which will underpin all their planning in the years to come. These they have incorporated into a Vision for Oakwood. We hope you will share our Vision and see it reflected in all that is planned and provided for your child in the years to come.



We are all starting a new school year together. It is an exciting adventure. There are lots of new children in the Nursery who are working with Marian and Becky. We also have another helper called Lorna. She comes to play every Monday and Tuesday. Some of our mums come to play at school to play too and the teachers all like to see them and are always grateful for their help.

In Reception the children are settling into their new class with their teacher Mrs. Potter, and Mrs. Garzia.

We are all getting together to perform a song for the Harvest Festival in October and we are also working on the same big book which this time is ‘Elmer the Elephant’. There is lots to do. We are making some fantastic coloured paintings, writing and reading some elephant books as well as making some really good models.


We are going on a sponsored walk around our school at the beginning of October. We have to walk all the way around 5 times! if we are in the Nursery. But if you are in the Reception class you have to walk around 10 times! We are hoping to raise a lot of money so that we can make our outside play garden much more exciting. It is quite a difficult job to decide what we need to change and what we need to keep the same. When we have finished we will out some photos on this web site for you to see.


We are going on an Autumn walk around the gardens of our school and hope to find many interesting things. Maybe we will see the squirrels that live in the garden and even play on the climbing frame when we are inside. They always get off and run back up the trees when we go out to play!




Individual members of the teaching staff act as Curriculum Co-ordinators for the various subjects of the Curriculum. In this role, they support colleagues and develop ideas and resources which are used throughout the school. They have contributed to the following information on each subject area.
