Vision and Values


Our vision and values are captured in the phrase ‘Oaklands is unique’  



We are an Autism Specialist school where staff strive to understand  every child’s needs so they can develop their full potential and work with the community to develop wider understanding about Autism


Every member of Oaklands school (children, staff & families) is nurtured to develop their talents, interests and skills, now and for the future

IInteraction and Communication

We insist on high quality interactions between children, staff and community in every environment at all times, so that every member of our school can express their character and value using their preferred methods of communication


We strive to excel in every area of school, including through sports, social and cultural experiences, and in our work with the community so that our Oaklands family have a high quality of life


Oaklands is a family and everyone who is involved with school has value and can contribute to our shared learning


Our learners are engaged and challenged through an irresistible curriculum that meets their needs and prepares them for the world


We can achieve this through:

  • Using a bespoke, innovative ‘inside-outside’ curriculum which is tailored to the individual needs of each pupil.
  • Working together with the pupils and their families to meet needs
  • Promoting an inclusive culture, both within Oaklands and through links with other schools, agencies and the community.
  • The consistent use of Positive Behaviour Support, responding to the needs of individuals
  • Identifying, delivering and disseminating good practice in the education of children with special educational needs.
  • Acting as a conduit and coordinator for multi-agency work, which addresses a child’s individual needs effectively
