Vision and Ethos

  • Confidence
  • Achievement
  • Respect
  • Responsibility

Everyone is valued for the contribution they make to the life and growth of the school. We welcome the diversity of race, religion, gender, ability and culture that our children and their families and staff bring to our school community and the richness this adds to the life of the school.

We value our strong relationship with parents & carers. We regard challenging behaviour as having a purpose. We therefore seek to understand that purpose and teach more appropriate alternatives.

Everyone is valued for the contribution they make to the life and growth of the school.

All children will believe in themselves, that they can achieve, they do have confidence and they accept who they are and value who they are.

Safeguarding at Oak View is led by the Head Teacher who is the Designated Lead. We have another member of the senior leadership team trained at level 3 for Child Protection.

We follow a rigorous approach to safer recruitment to ensure all staff are vetted thoroughly and deliver regular Child Protection training.

Farewell from the Head Teacher

I joined the Oak View in January 2008 as Deputy Head and became Head in 2010. It has been the most amazing journey for me personally and professionally. I have had the 'time of my life' to quote a song.

I am very proud of everyone at Oak View, the children and young people, the staff and Governors. It has been a fantastic pleasure and opportunity for me to lead this amazing team. Oak View has a uniqueness which is reflected in the progress of all the pupils, the commitment and dedication of all the staff and the support from the families and Governors.

Farewell and Best wishes for the future.

Dianne Ryan
Head Teacher
