These are the comments by a number of different people associated with Oakridge School and it is these words that sum up why the Oakridge School community is a fantastic community to be part of. We are one community and we work together to transform the life chances of all our children. We are guided by a common set of school values:
We are a school that caters for children from Nursery up to Year 6. We have two classes per year group, which means we have approximately 470 pupils attending the school. We are extremely proud of the diverse and inclusive nature of the school and we welcome everybody.
Our curriculum, whilst following the National Curriculum, is designed especially for Oakridge School. Through the school’s ‘Golden Threads’ our curriculum is ambitious and fit for purpose in the 21st century. It is designed to give Oakridge children the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to succeed in life. It takes into account the needs of individuals in order to achieve our core purpose.
The core purpose of our school is to transform the life chances of all our children.’ –- (January 2020)
(For more information on our curriculum, please see our curriculum page on our website under the ‘Learning’ tab)
Together, we have an unrelenting ambition to improve and drive the school forward. Together we work hard to ensure that all pupils make good progress at the school, not just academically but personally and socially as well. Our motto is ‘Working together to succeed.’
I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher of Oakridge School. The commitment shown by staff and governors to make a difference to children’s lives is truly inspirational. We have supportive parents and truly wonderful children who enjoy being at school. Together we make up the Oakridge family.
