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.
