About Us

“Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow”

At Oakwood School we aim to provide a happy, caring stable environment, where each child will have the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential. Each child is valued as a holistic individual with their own unique set of abilities and challenges. We focus on what the child can do and celebrate their every achievement. We provide a family environment where children and staff support, help and nurture each other. We understand our children’s needs and provide an education personalised to meet those needs.

Our school motto is: -

“If you want children to learn first make them happy”

At Oakwood we promote an ethos which demonstrates mutual respect for all children, their parents and our staff. We encourage all children and staff to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others and to show respect for all cultures and beliefs.

We are committed to:

  • Putting pupils first
  • Providing a welcoming, dynamic and supportive learning and teaching environment
  • Delivering the Curriculum through an individualised and child centred approach
  • Ensuring that the highest standards of Pastoral Care, Safeguarding and Child Protection are in place
  • Promoting and sustaining good behaviour
  • Treating everyone with dignity and respect
  • Continuing to foster and develop effective home/school links
  • Working together as a team for the benefit of each pupil

Oakwood School is a place where children, their families and staff are welcomed and encouraged to become the best that they can be.
