Welcome to Oakfield Park School’s website.
I hope you will find it informative and accessible.
We are a Local Authority maintained secondary school providing ‘Outstanding education’ (Ofsted Oct 2019) for young people aged 11-19 years with severe, complex or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Many of our students have additional needs including Autism, sensory impairment, challenging behaviour, medical and physical difficulties.
We pride ourselves on the fact that Oakfield Park School provides our young people with a safe, stimulating, happy and friendly environment where they are surrounded by knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate staff. Students then thrive and learn through accessing vibrant and engaging opportunities.
Our ethos is very much focused on developing all our students communication, social interaction, life skills and community access. Through working in partnership with all stakeholders, parents, carers, respite centres, social care and multi-disciplinary teams our students can then transfer and generalise all their skills so that they are able to lead as independent a life as possible and successfully transition onto the next phase of their lives, fully prepared for the journey.
Here at Oakfield Park we have created our own individual, bespoke and relevant curriculum which we believe meets the needs of all our many and varied students.
Our mission statement is 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 October 2019 we were inspected by Ofsted and we were delighted that the inspectors found us to be “Outstanding” in all areas. Overall Effectiveness, The Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development, Leadership and Management and Sixth Form. Here are a few quotes from the report:
- “Oakfield Park is a remarkably friendly and welcoming school”
- “The quality of education at Oakfield Park is outstanding”
- There are “exceptionally strong relationships between pupils and staff”
- “By the time students leave school, they are exceedingly well prepared for adult life”
- “Pupils” … “feel happy and safe because they know that adults care about them”
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.
