Values and Ethos

Oakdale Junior School

‘Learning for Life’

We are committed to high standards of attainment and progress for all pupils, and for every pupil to be given the opportunity to shine and to take pride in their achievements.

Our school community celebrates its rich diversity at all times ensuring equality of opportunity.  We strive to work as a team, enabling us to offer a safe, welcoming, nurturing and inspiring environment.

We believe that children can develop responsibility, with respect for themselves and others, thus creating a community which has values and attitudes which will stand the pupils in good stead for life-long learning.

School Aims

  • We encourage children to discover and develop their own aspirations whilst providing a curriculum that enables them to be the best they can be.
  • To further encourage a sense of social and moral responsibility fitting for the society in which we live, through being a Rights Respecting school, a school where everyone is aware of their rights and responsibilities towards others.
  • To encourage the whole community towards a greater understanding of the individual’s contribution regardless of age, gender, race or religion by providing equal opportunities for all of our children.
