Headteacher's Welcome to Oldfield Primary School
Oldfield is a forward-thinking, friendly school where excellence is our hallmark! Expectations for pupils’ personal, academic and sporting achievements are high on our large site with an extensive nature trail and creative areas.
We aim to live out our mission, “Joy through effective learning for life”, based on the belief that every child, indeed, every person in the school (and every person who has to do with the school, so that’s parents too), irrespective of creed, colour or background can be their best as well as achieve their best and thereby contribute positively to our school community and to society. Strong, committed governance is really making a difference in our school. Parent voice is also strong: Parent Reps. help to shape important policies such as Relationship, Health and Reproduction and others enthusiastically partner through the Friends of Oldfield Association.
When a child’s gifts or talents are drawn out, when their “learning lights go on” something profound is going on in their lives that equates to joy, so we all work very hard to create the supportive learning environment that enables children to be themselves, to be accepted and valued for the unique person they are and so they become lifelong learners, enabled to achieve all that they can.
Oldfield is a school where children flourish academically, personally and through sports. Expectations for achievement in these three areas are high’. ‘Our three main values are to be ‘Kind, Friendly and Safe’. Please use the link to see our values flower’,
