Our mission is to develop children of good character, who achieve excellence and are prepared for their future in order to make a positive contribution to their communities.
We aim to develop the knowledge, skills and character to live happy, healthy and successful lives.
All are included and work hard to fulfil their potential regardless of background or starting point. Pupil choices are not limited by self-belief, opportunity or circumstance.
“Educating the mind without educating the soul is no education at all”
Our children come to school with varied learning experiences that they have experienced through their lives at other settings, at home or within other schools.
We know that our children are focused and well-behaved but our purpose is to inspire our children to have aspirations, goals and ambition beyond what they think is possible.
We give children hands-on learning so that they can do more than listen, think and respond - our children become individuals who are focused, curious, creative, independent, self-managed, resilient, empathetic and reflective as we believe these to be the keys to success.
At Oakfield, we have designed our curriculum with pupils’ learning at the centre. We recognise that a curriculum has to be broad, balanced and offer pupils opportunities to grow as individuals as well as learners.
We passionately believe that all children, whatever their individual circumstances, should feel secure, included, valued and challenged in all aspects of school life by being at the centre of every action and decision we make.
We strive to enable our children to leave Oakfield as skilled and well-rounded individuals, successfully prepared to take on the challenge of secondary school and adulthood. Through a combination of learning techniques, we aim to ensure pupils enjoy learning and feel prepared for life after school. We also offer our pupils new and exciting experiences through extra-curricular activities that are designed to build resilience, confidence and self-esteem.
We recognise that pupils should be challenged in their schooling; learning from failures and celebrating successes. We intend for our curriculum to be empowering, enabling pupils to develop their interpersonal skills, creativity and independence.
