OAKDALE JUNIOR SCHOOL WELCOME - WATCH OUR VIDEO TO FIND OUT MORESee our Virtual Tour
It is with great pleasure that we offer you a warm welcome to the Oakdale Junior School website. We hope that you find its content informative, and that you are able to share the pride we have in our pupils and our school. This is a successful school: we work hard to ensure our pupils make excellent academic progress and we are committed to guiding their development as successful, confident and responsible young people.
Our dynamic learning community thrives on our numerous core values, which represent key characteristics we would all want our children to embrace; everything that we do is embodied in our simple philosophy that we are working in partnership to help everyone reach their potential. This reflects our completely inclusive culture and our desire for the absolute best outcomes for the children in our care. As a junior school, with our specialist facilities, a truly exciting curriculum and a plethora of trips, excursions and visits for all year groups, we certainly hope to create many memorable experiences for our pupils along the way!
Whilst we pride ourselves on our achievements and identity, we are proud to be part of a wider, multi-academy trust of schools, collaborating closely with local infant and secondary schools. The quality of education is of a high standard and our role is to ensure that our pupils gain confidence in their abilities, obtain truly transferrable skills and are thoroughly prepared for secondary school when they leave us at the end of Year 6. We are very fortunate to be able to care for our pupils during a key phase in their personal development and their confidence truly shines through, as a result.
Pupils at Oakdale enjoy excellent facilities and a spacious, safe, well-maintained school; equally, we maintain consistent and demanding standards of behaviour and have high expectations of our pupils in the classroom. As a result, we are often complimented on the learning atmosphere around school and the polite, friendly welcome that our visitors receive. This is a rewarding place in which to learn and work and we continue to commit to high educational standards and excellent working relationships between our pupils and our highly motivated and supportive staff team. We hope you are able to find everything that you require on our website, but please do remember that we are only a telephone call, an email, or a visit away, should you wish to learn more.
