Welcome to Oakfield Primary school, a small, friendly school in Totton between Southampton and the New Forest National Park in Hampshire.
Our overall aim at Oakfield is to achieve the highest quality education for each individual child coupled with providing a secure, happy and stimulating environment where children can develop confidence and grow in all respects. This has now been recognised following our recent Ofsted inspection in which the school was judged as good.
We believe that education is a partnership between parents and children. We feel we are all involved in playing an important part in making school life fair and happy for everyone, ensuring that partnership brings about the greatest success in children’s learning.
I do hope that you enjoy looking through our website to find out what our children have been learning about and seeing the exciting events happening at Oakfield.
