Oaklands School - Mission Statement
“Making Learning Fun!”
Ethos & Values
The staff and governors of Oaklands School seek:
- To create a strong, positive culture within school.
- To provide opportunities for pupils to achieve success regardless.
- To encourage pupils to have belief in themselves and their abilities.
We can achieve this through:
- We use an 'Inside - Outside' Curriculum which is tailored to the individual needs of each pupil.
- The consistent use of a structured Positive Behaviour Support Policy.
- Involving the pupils’ families in the life of the school and the meeting of the pupils’ needs.
- Promoting an inclusive culture, both within Oaklands and through links with other schools, agencies and the community.
- Identifying, delivering and disseminating good practice in the education of children with special educational needs.
- Acting as a conduit and co-ordinator for multi-agency work, which addresses a child’s individual needs effectively.
