Oakwood primary provides a learner-centred atmosphere that nurtures a strong sense of community among our students in our mission to “Promote moral and academic excellence”.
We teach the National Curriculum, Islamic studies, Quran and Arabic and our Islamic ethos permeates throughout the curriculum.
To provide a safe, purposeful and supportive learning environment, fostering a sense of self-esteem and respect for others, and helping every achieve their full potential.
I am delighted to welcome you to Oakwood Primary School and I hope that our website will give you a snapshot of life at our school. I appreciate the importance that you attach to selecting the right school for your child – early years experiences are crucial to shaping our whole life and can only be experienced once.
With this in mind, and the belief that children learn best when they feel happy and secure, we aim to develop in our pupils a life-long interest in learning and self development – one which encompasses the full range of intellectual, cultural, artistic and sporting possibilities that are available.
Of course, all our worldly efforts are nothing if we do not undertake them with the single minded intention of pleasing Allah (God Almighty). Oakwood is unashamedly a Muslim school which is founded upon the beliefs and etiquettes of Islam.
We have dedicated specialist teachers for Qur’an and Arabic language and we ensure that all subject areas are taught from an Islamic perspective, with clear links to the knowledge and teachings of the Qur’an and Prophetic example.
A lot of time is spent on reading, writing and speaking because we believe these skills are the foundation of all other learning.
We offer great teaching and a personalised and varied curriculum giving your child the chance to explore science, sport, Islamic history, thinking skills and Arabic Language. We believe in building up each child’s ability to learn: their resilience, spark, eloquence, expertise, craftsmanship and professionalism.
If there is one thing we believe in more than anything else it is that a school should be a place of joy, discovery, wonder and imagination with a stimulating learning environment and exceptional behaviour.
At Oakwood, we believe in individual care and attention for all our children. Visitors to our school are always impressed by the friendly, positive and confident attitude of the pupils and the feeling of energy and purpose that permeates our school.
Our experienced staff are caring and understanding, while understanding the importance of effort and personal discipline in helping children to attain the highest academic and social standards.
I very much look forward to meeting you soon, InshAllah.
