Our Vision and Ethos
For all learners to have courage to embrace new experiences with confidence; work co-operatively, whilst respecting and caring for others; be curious about the whole world and enjoy learning for life.
Oakfield Junior School is an inclusive school which offers a broad, balanced and stimulating education, where pupils maximise individual progress in a respectful, caring and safe environment. At Oakfield we have 5 core values which we refer to as the 5C’s . These values are reinforced by all staff and governors; shared by all pupils and evident throughout the school. Our pupils are well behaved and enjoy learning from our skilled and dedicated team of staff who provide high levels of care, support and guidance-contributing to the schools excellent pastoral care. The vast majority of parents and carers strongly agree: that their children like school; that the school keeps pupils safe and that teaching is good or better. Oakfield Junior School is set in Fetcham Village in Leatherhead. The school is popular in the local area and is full in most year groups. The school enjoys the active support of parents and the village community. The school is a member of the Effingham Learning Partnership Confederation (ELP). Oakfield is an average size junior school with two forms of entry in each year. We currently have 250 pupils on roll. The school has a designated Learning and Additional Needs (LAN) Centre which supports up to 16 pupils with a SEND EHCP. We strive to maintain a caring and inclusive ethos where each individual is valued and where the education of the whole child is catered for. The broad curriculum motivates pupils because it not only takes into account their interests and aspirations but is enriched through a range of up to thirty clubs and extra-curricular activities that many pupils enjoy. These activities raise pupils self-esteem; enable them to develop new skills; experience success and develop their ability to work successfully as a team.
