Welcome to Oakfield Primary School
I am delighted to welcome you to Oakfield Primary School, a great place to work and an exciting place to learn. We have a very strong team of staff and governors at Oakfield who support me in leading and managing the school whilst creating a ‘buzz for learning’ within our classrooms.
We were very pleased with the outcome of our most recent Ofsted Inspection on 28th September 2017. As Oakfield was judged to be ‘a good school with outstanding behaviour and safety of pupils’ at the previous inspection, this was a section 8 Short Inspection and the outcome was that the school remains good. Short inspection provides an opportunity for leaders to share with the lead inspector ‘how they are sustaining and continuing to improve the good quality of education for pupils’ and to ‘demonstrate their capacity for driving further improvement in their school’.
As a school, we continue to aspire high in everything we do. Oakfield is going from strength to strength and anyone visiting the school will see exciting teaching and learning opportunities for our children. We want children to be happy – to enjoy school and nurture a love of learning from the start leading to character building and lifelong learning so that they become the very best that they can be.
Your children will always be our number one priority but, as parents and carers, you too are an important part of the partnership between home and school to ensure that your child enjoys and achieves at school and takes away ‘memorable moments’ from their time at Oakfield.
I am proud of the pupils of Oakfield Primary School – proud of every one of them – and proud to be their Headteacher. I look forward to leading the school through new challenges and development in the future. I hope that you will take the time to explore our school through our website, to gain a feel of what we are about; working together, through a shared vision – ‘to create a school that unlocks the potential of every child’.
