Headteachers Welcome

On behalf of the staff, governors and the diocese, I warmly welcome you to our school, Oak CE Primary School.

Our vision of ‘Be The Best We Can Be’ is firmly underpinned through our shared Christian Values of ‘Love, Respect, Endeavour and Joy’ and through putting the children at the heart of everything we do, ensuring:

  • Our values shine through everything we do.
  • Every child has a voice through our Oracy based curriculum developed in conjunction with Voice 21.
  • Our Big Ideas of ‘Community, Aspiration, Belief & Identity’ are taught through our broad and balanced curriculum and strong PHSCE.
  • Excellent attendance, behaviour and relationships.
  • Our teaching is the very best and meets the needs of individual learners.
  • We have highly effective leaders at all levels.
  • We are continually learning and improving as individuals and as a school. All members of the school community are seen as learners.

Whatever the needs of your child and whatever special interests they have, we aim to ensure your child thrives here, feels safe, has fun and enjoys success.  We want our pupils’ time in our school to be memorable, building on what they know and can do, leading them to become lifelong learners.

We are fully committed to working closely with all parents / carers as co-educators as well as the wider community to ensure that all children can aspire to and reach their full potential.

These partnerships between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders are essential.  Together we can set challenges and our partners can help us ask ‘how can we do this even better?’

 The well-being and safety of children are paramount at Oak Primary. We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children, and expect all staff, volunteers and parents to share this commitment.  We have a dedicated and experienced safeguarding team who are always on hand to support children and their families.

I hope that you find all the information about the school that you need. If there is anything additional that you would like to know, please feel free to contact us.
