Welcome to the Primary and Nursery section of the Oakgrove School website.
The ethos of the Primary and Nursery is captured within the existing Oakgrove School motto of: 'Excellence, Innovation, Respect'. Excellence in teaching and learning from the very start is the core purpose of the school. The all through nature of the provision represents innovation. Respect is at the heart of the Primary and Nursery. Parents, children and staff work together and respect for all is the foundation of these relationships as we work together to deliver the very best outcomes for the children who attend our school.
In September 2016, our wonderful building was still under construction. The contrast between that and the vibrant and bustling community we have created is sharp indeed and it is remarkable to think that so much has been achieved in such a short period of time.
We are incredibly proud of the vibrant learning community which has been created at the Primary and Nursery. We want all of our pupils to grow as independent and self-motivated learners who take joy in the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. I am always pleased when parents, secondary students and secondary colleagues comment on the fact that the Primary and Nursery ‘feels like Oakgrove’. Making sure the all-through nature of the school is emphasised and that we have a consistent thread of ‘Oakgrove-ness’ running from Nursery into the Sixth Form has been a point of emphasis for all of us.
