Dear Parents / Carers


I was privileged to attend, during the build up to Christmas, our Christmas Bazaar, the three school nativity plays and the whole school Pantomine in Southend. These epitomise the spirit of Oakfield Primary School in not only providing 'memorable moments' for all but also demonstrating the myriad talents and enthusiasm from all the school's vital components- its children, its teachers and staff,our parents and the wider community.

This spirit is reflected on a day-to-day school basis where senses of mutual respect, politeness, enthusiasm and care pervade all our activities. These senses provide the foundation for achievements in all aspects of our curricula so that striving for each child to realise their potential remains
paramount. I feel immense pride and gratitude that myself and my fellow  Governors contribute to and form part of this spirit.

Thank you and best wishes to everyone who are part of the Oakfield spirit.


David Knight - Chair of Governors
