Welcome to Oakwood Primary School

Oakwood Primary School aspires to create a safe environment where children are able to achieve their full potential in all aspects of their learning and development. We will achieve this by creating a learning environment which is stimulating and challenging, inclusive and enjoyable.

Oakwood aims to promote a pride in a sense of belonging to our school and local community.


Dear Parents and Carers,

We are at the end of another week and the children and staff have continued to be amazing in how they are dealing with the changes that Covid-19 has brought upon us – I feel lucky to work with such a fabulous group of adults and children.

I would also like to thank you all for the understanding, cooperation and support that you have shown all through this pandemic – it has been fantastic to see our school community becoming even stronger than it was before.

The new drop off and pick up times are working well and our neighbours have commented on the improved situation in the road – in relation to this could I ask that children and parents don’t lean on our neighbours fences or walls it causes annoyance and some damage. A retired couple with significant health issues have had the coping stones on their wall loosened by people leaning or climbing on their wall – if any of you have the skill to rectify this or know of someone who has it would be great to save the couple the cost of repair.

Next Wednesday is our Harvest Festival and classes will be posting videos on their dojo class pages of their celebrations – suitable contributions to our foodbank would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good weekend.

Do stay safe
Dave Hill
