Welcome to Oakley Lower School
On behalf of the Governors, the staff and myself, I would like to welcome you to Oakley Lower School. We are a very happy village school with a dedicated team. Children, staff, parents and governors all work hard to make the school an important part of the community. We hope that you will very soon feel that you are part of our school community.
We aim to educate the whole child, to encourage lively and creative minds, to foster social skills and an understanding of other people’s needs; also to give each pupil the opportunity to develop his/her own potential within the school’s curriculum, bearing in mind the fact that all children have individual needs.
The children are taught to apply themselves to tasks, to acquire a variety of skills, to take pride in their work and their school and develop a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs. By these means, we hope to have equipped them well for both their future education and life.
In the pages which follow you should find some useful details about us. However, there will be questions I am sure you will want to ask. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further information. Our joint concern is the education of your children: we look forward to working together with you to achieve this aim.
