“The more that you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!” – Dr Seuss.
Our vision at Oaklands Community Primary School is to empower children to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value the knowledge and skills that will support them as life-long learners and competent communicators.
English is for everyone. Our children are encouraged to express themselves and reinforce their opinions with thoughtful, reasoned arguments: speaking and listening skills are carefully crafted and include, public speaking, debating, conscience alley and drama activities to assist in the development of vocabulary.
We foster a passion for reading and writing: quality texts are used to inspire and promote the love of reading and writing throughout the school. We recognise that the precise acquisition of language skills forms firm foundations; children leave Oaklands Community Primary School with secure English skills that allow them to thrive and become skilful learners in a multitude of subjects.
