At Oakmeadow we are very proud of our pupils, our staff and the positive atmosphere they create. It is a school based on kindness, trust, love, integrity, team work and respect and this ethos enables pupils of all abilities to thrive at our school. We work hard all through the year in our charity fundraising so we can actively contribute to our wider community and daily we reflect in our assemblies and worship how we can continue to improve ourselves and our world. Christian values run as a thread through our learning and teaching and collective worship forms an important part of our daily life.
While we recognise the importance of achieving high standards here at our school (and we certainly achieve them!), we are truly passionate about ensuring our children are also well rounded individuals who are emotionally resilient, empathetic and caring. We believe strongly that every person contributes as part of the team that makes us work her at Oakmeadow. We are a fully inclusive community where we believe all children have the right to achieve their potential and so we plan carefully to support and challenge them to do so. This means we work in full partnership with parents and home, acknowledging that children’s learning does not only take place in School, but is an on-going process.
Arriving as the new Headteacher in 2013 at Oakmeadow I asked the children and staff what they most wanted, the reply: ‘We want a brain stretching, laughter sharing, independence building and a mistake making sort of place’. So this is what we set out to achieve daily and I can proudly say we learn from all our experiences, even when we get it wrong and we every day share lots of laughter.
We welcome you to look around our school, we know you will love it too.
I look forward to meeting you!
