The School Organisation
144 children were on roll at the beginning of the academic year 2004/2005, covering three year groups in 6 classes. All class sizes are below 30. The majority of the children are taught in mixed ability groups according to age.

Children transfer from the Nursery each term.

The School Day

School session times are 9.00 am to 12.00 noon

                                        1.00 pm to 3.00 pm


It is important that the children are at school for registration at 9.00 am. However, class teachers are in their classrooms to receive them from 8.50 am. Parents are welcome to bring their children in at that time. Pupils are collected from the playground at 3.00 pm.

Special Educational Needs

Some children experience emotional, developmental or learning difficulties during their schooling. If children’s learning is significantly affected by these difficulties, they are considered to have Special Educational Needs. At Oyster Park Infant School most of these children are catered for in the normal classroom situation by the teacher providing a differentiated curriculum and individual education plans and through extra support being given by a Teaching Assistant.

Progress is closely monitored by the Class Teacher and the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and regular reports will be given to parents. The curriculum takes good account of what is in pupils’ individual education plans.

Sometimes it is necessary to involve outside agencies such as the School Psychological Service, Speech Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Special Educational Needs Support Service Personnel.

Some children have statements for Special Educational Needs. They are taught within their normal classes, but have additional help from an Education Support Assistant. Individual Education Plans are devised for these children.

Provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs has been deemed by OFSTED as good.

A copy of the School’s Special Needs Policy, which has been adapted to fall in line with the New Code of Practice, is available for inspection at the school by appointment.


The children take books home to read on a regular basis. Words which children should learn to spell, are given weekly to Year 2 pupils. As part of some topic work, children take home questionnaires or grids to complete with the help of parents and grandparents. ‘Sound’ books are sent to parents of pupils in Reception, to inform them of the different phonemes their children are learning. High frequency words which we wish all pupils to learn, are sent home as well.

Extra-curricular Clubs

We have extra-curricular clubs for pupils at lunch-time and after school. These are:

Library Club

Drama Club

Line Dancing Club

Writing Club



Our school aims, are to:


  1. Create a positive ethos, that equally values pupils, staff, parents and governors.
  2. Recognise that all children are individuals.
  3. Ensure equal opportunity for all pupils to achieve their full potential in all areas of development, e.g. intellectual, creative, physical and emotional.
  4. Enable each child to develop a positive self-image.
  5. Encourage all children to develop responsibility for themselves and others.
  6. Foster spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
