Oakfield Park School

All Different, All Valued, All Equal

At Oakfield Park, we aim for all our students to develop a ‘voice’, to be as independent, social and healthy as possible, enabling them to become citizens who engage positively with society, whilst leading happy and fulfilled lives.

 Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Oakfield Park School’s website.  I hope you will find it informative and accessible.

We are a Local Authority maintained school providing education for young people aged 11 to 19 years with severe, complex or profound and multiple learning difficulties.  Many of our pupils have additional needs including autism, sensory impairment, challenging behaviour, medical and physical difficulties. We currently have 114 students on roll of which 67 are C.I.N., 12 are L.A.C. and 40 are F.S.M.  Our school community is diverse and young people attend from across the Wakefield Metropolitan District. We work closely with other special schools and PRUs in Wakefield and are signed up to a Memorandum of Understanding which forms the basis of a working agreement with them. (For more information on each of these schools or Units please visit: 

At Oakfield Park we endeavour to implement the following school mission statement in all that we do. 

"At Oakfield Park, we aim for all our students to develop a ‘voice’, to be as independent, social and healthy as possible, enabling them to become citizens who engage positively with society, whilst leading happy and fulfilled lives."

In order to reflect this statement, the education we deliver at Oakfield Park is continually evolving to ensure that we offer the best possible preparation for life both within school, and most importantly, for when our students leave school and move on to whichever provision is considered by the students and their families to be the most beneficial.  Staff have recently been working hard to develop and deliver an even more relevant curriculum  whilst at the same time striving to reflect both our school motto “All Different, All Valued, all Equal” and our school rules "Be Kind, Stay Safe, Work Hard", in all that we do.

In November 2014 we were inspected by Ofsted and we were delighted that the inspectors found us to be “Outstanding” in all six categories which were assessed.  Following this full inspection we had a further one day inspection in November 2018 in which we maintained our status as an Outstanding school. (Click here for more information)

Our staff team is committed to working in partnership with all stakeholders to ensure the highest standards of care and education are in place for each individual student.   We will always offer a warm welcome to all visitors to our school and we are very proud of the positive feedback we receive from friends, families and professionals.

Safeguarding plays a crucial role in all we do here at Oakfield Park school.  Please click here to see our Safeguarding Page
