All Different, All Valued, All Equal

Meet the Key Stage 3 team:

Hi, I'm Frances and I am Class 1 teacher at Oakfield Park school. 

In class one we have a very active timetable, we like hands on activities and visit lots of different areas in school. We like to visit weekly the sensory room and soft play area, adventure play, the ICT suite, the cooking room, the ball pool and the bikes and go karts. 

In class there is lots to do and lots for you to play with at choose time. We love sensory and creative activities and we have them in most sessions. We are a structured class with a timetable, bay areas for independent work, group work areas and a playground for ourselves. We have lots of rewards and consequences for you and your own reward chart.

We are all excited to see you in September and wish you a happy holidays!

I have a structured timetable and use bay work and symbols to support the students and to maximise communication and understanding. I think students should have access to a curriculum that is adapted to make it exciting and interesting. I like to see students enjoying themselves whilst learning and make progress throughout all areas of the curriculum.The topic in September is Magic!

In Class 9, we have a mixture of needs and our super staff team will ensure that you have a lovely varied programme of activities that work for you.  We have a structured timetable but within it do all sorts of things: lots of independence tasks; exercise such as the gym or physiotherapy; singing and dancing; artwork; and of course, Literacy and Numeracy work which fits in with real life experiences. We work on communication a lot so do plenty of singing and signing and using whatever communication method you need. We work on social and emotional skills too, including good socialisation with peers so of course, we have to play loads of games!

Meet the Post 16 Team 

Hello, I’m Chloe and I’m really looking forward to welcoming you to Class 17 in September! We have a lovely team of staff waiting to see you, who will ease you back into the routine of school after what has been a difficult year for us all. We are busy planning lots of wonderful multi-sensory activities to help you to learn and grow and we want to encourage you to be the very best that you can be. Now that you are in Post 16, as well as working to improve your communication and cognition skills, there will be a greater focus on independence and self-help, as well as preparing you for adulthood. My favourite things to do are singing, dancing (badly) and listening to music, so we will also be sure to have lots of fun along the way! :) I hope you have a fantastic Summer - make sure you are well rested for all the hard work to come in the new Academic Year!


I am Dale and I have been a teacher at Oakfield Park for the last 6 years. I am currently teaching in Post 16 and will be teaching in Class 13 this year. I am involved across whole school sporting events such as sports day and boccia competitions as well as sports competitions outside of school. 


I'm Richard, I teach a class in post 16. You may see me in the post 16 area or out in the garden! We are lucky in school and have a sensory garden, polytunnel and an outside place for growing veg so plenty of places to get your hands dirty! I have worked here for two years now and I am still finding my way about the school so don't worry if you get lost on a visit. We are all looking forward to seeing the students again and a return to 'normality' and a new school year.



Hi I am Alison and I work as class 16 teacher in the Post 16 department. I love to get creative and messy in class, although I'm not so sure all my staff enjoy it as much as I do! I also enjoy running our busy, noisy MATP PE sessions in the hall each week.
