Head teacher's welcome
As the new head teacher of Oakdale South Road Middle School, I am delighted to welcome you to our school website.
We are a friendly, happy and popular middle deemed primary school, serving the communities of Oakdale and Old Town Poole. Additionally, we also currently have children from other areas of Poole.
Our school community has many qualities but, in particular, prides itself on good pupil personal development, high standards of pupil behaviour and good participation in the many enrichment clubs and activities that are on offer to our children.
Achievements have included nationally recognised awards such as Sport England Activemark Gold and Healthy Schools. In July 2007 we gained the 'Investors in People' award in recognition of our work in professionally developing all staff in our school. Sport and music are strong features of our school and 2006/07 saw some notable successes, in particular, the Year 7 girls winning the County netball competition and, on the musical front, considerable numbers of children participtating in extra curricular music activities.
Our school has excellent resources, a wonderful building and a staff and team of governors committed to continual improvement.
If you wish to find out more about us, please contact the school. I or my Deputy, Mr Cook, or Assistant Head, Miss Horlock, would be more than happy to talk to you and show you around.
