Primary Headteacher’s Welcome

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 Oakgrove School.

The Primary and Nursery opened in September 2016, our wonderful building was still under construction. The vibrant and bustling community that has been created is sharp indeed and it is remarkable to think that so much has been achieved in such a short period of time.

Oakgrove staff are incredibly proud of the successful learning community at the Primary and Nursery. Pupils grow as independent and self-motivated learners who take joy in the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. It is always pleasing when parents, secondary students and secondary colleagues comment that the Primary and Nursery ‘feels like Oakgrove’. Making sure the all-through nature of the school is emphasised and, that there is a consistent thread of ‘Oakgrove-ness’ running from Nursery, right through into the Sixth Form, has been a point of emphasis for all at Oakgrove.
