School Description

Oakfield Park is a remarkably friendly and welcoming school. Staff are highly skilled. They really know their pupils and understand their needs precisely. Pupils say they love coming to school and love learning. They feel happy and safe because they know that adults care about them. Pupils’ behaviour is superb. Classrooms and corridors are calm. Staff are on hand at breaktime to help pupils to play and socialise with each other. Pupils say they do not worry about bullying. They know that adults will help if others are unkind to them. Day-to-day routines are established and clear. Pupils know exactly what they need to do. Some pupils travel quite a distance to school. Breakfast club and morning exercise help these pupils, in particular, to settle and be ready to learn. Pupils work hard and achieve highly at Oakfield Park. Teachers’ expectations of pupils are high. They ensure that pupils have the right help at the right time to progress. By the time students leave school, they are exceedingly well prepared for adult life. Some pupils already have a job by the time they leave. Students in the sixth form told us they have plans for the future and are excited to move on from school.
