Information about the school

The Oaks Infant School ‘Where we are inspired’

Our Ethos: We are passionate about education and our ethos embodies child-led learning. We ensure that deep learning happens through play, investigation and exploration. Adults are model learners and challenge themselves to continually develop their own practice and provision through self-reflection, research, collaboration and innovation. Both adults and pupils are conscientious and considered risk takers. Adults and pupils build extremely positive relationships which scaffolds learning further and enables children to be self-assured individuals.

Our Vision: The curriculum is even richer and successfully nurtures every child’s self-esteem and interests, building the cultural capital they need to become successful citizens in the wider world. It enables them to explore, embed and develop expertise in a set of skills and knowledge which have been carefully designed to meet their unique needs. Children are prepared for their next stage of education and collaborative working means that this transition is seamless. As a result, children and adults are confident, resilient, content, independent, inspired, self-motivated, life-long learners
