Welcome to Oak View School


Oak View will inspire and support our pupils in preparation for their future lives through a personalised journey, aiming to develop and promote active partnerships within the school, families and broader community and to develop and make innovative use of our resources. Values & vision.

Safeguarding - A very high standard of safeguarding is achieved using a rigorous approach and high expectations, with systems and reporting understood and used by all staff, who are all alert to the needs of pupils.

Behaviour - Behaviour management has a great positive impact on pupils and their progress. A caring and compassionate approach is underpinned by rigorous training, consistency, a deep understanding of all pupils and with strategies tailored for each pupil.

Curriculum - The curriculum is tailored to each pupil and provides learning and relevant life skills with all staff understanding the individual needs of pupils. A priority of the learning is to make experiences that are exciting and motivating for pupils, and to prepare them for life after school.

Pupil progress - Pupils achieve outstanding progress in all areas of their development as demonstrated through a portfolio of continuous assessments and reporting developed by staff and adapted to each pupil’s needs to demonstrate meaningful progress.

You are welcome to visit us or contact us to ask questions and find out more. If you wish to speak to a particular member of staff, we would ask that you make an appointment so that we can make sure that they are available to speak to you.
