At Oakdene we aim:


  • to enable all members of our School community to reach their full potential.
  • to prepare each child, through all aspects of School life, to become responsible citizens respecting themselves, others and the environment
  • to become independent and highly motivated learners.
  • to equip children to be flexible and adaptable to the modern world
  • for each child to feel valued, safe and confident.


The School Community will achieve these aims through:


  • engaging all members of the School community in providing a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum for every child.

  • children becoming partners in their own education and make a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos.

  • opportunities for children to take responsibility for their own learning.

  • using technology effectively to improve children’s learning.

  • a secure and safe environment.

  • sport, exercise and healthy living.

  • an enriching programme of extra curricular activities and visits.

  • learning partnerships between home, school and community.

  • opportunities for continuing professional development for all members of staff.
