Dear Parent/Guardian(s)

Welcome to Oak Field School and the new school year.

As you know, David Stewart retired in July, and I’d like to introduce myself as the new Head Teacher. Together with the new team, I am really looking forward to leading the school in to its next adventure – exciting times ahead!

My vision for Oak Field School, rooted in its long-established ethos and values, is of a vibrant, thriving and diverse learning community. It is of the highest quality teaching and learning, delivered through a dynamic, engaging and meaningful curriculum – a curriculum which offers all our pupils lots of different opportunities, and which draws out their curiosity, resilience, choice-making and independence skills, so that they will become aspirational, confident, lifelong learners who are fully equipped to embrace challenge. It is of an outward-facing school whose pupils are active, engaged and visible participants in the local and wider community, with all its richness of real-life experiences (see the Pestalozzi quotation in the school’s mission statement). It is of a safe, supportive, respectful and caring environment in which pupils, families, staff, multi-disciplinary teams, and other professionals have high expectations and work together in active, holistic partnership to maximise opportunity and minimise barriers, and to seek and provide excellence, both in and beyond school. Oak Field has always been about creative and committed teamwork – do have a look at our new video!

2020 is an especially exciting year for us, because it marks the 50th anniversary of the Education Act which brought all children within the education system. In the Summer Term, we will be celebrating this fully with a week-long festival where we will be showcasing our pupils’ many skills and talents.

In the meantime, we are looking forward to the Macmillan Coffee Mornings on Fri 27 Sep, Harvest Festival on Fri 11 Oct, Fireworks Night on Thurs 07 Nov, Family Fun Afternoon on Sat 07 Dec, and the Christmas Show (Sleeping Beauty) on Weds 11-Fri 13 Dec – please join us for all these events. Our next Parents Evening is on Mon 11 November, and we hope to see you there!

With very best wishes for this term,

Patricia Lewis
Head Teacher
