Oakwood Junior School promotes high achievement and learning by working with children to:-

  • become highly motivated to learn with an enquiring mind and a spirit of curiosity
  • try their best to achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum
  • have high self-esteem by respecting and working well with others
  • take pride in their work and be able to work independently and collaboratively
  • look after their school and those in it – respecting themselves and the environment.

Mission for the school
We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing high quality in:-

  • a broad and challenging curriculum
  • an enriching programme of opportunities, activities, visitors and visits
  • a stimulating learning environment
  • an ethos of support, challenge and encouragement
