Oakfield Short Stay School educates up to thirty children, ranging in ages from five to eleven. Following a phased, individualised induction, children are welcomed into one of three classes.
Our classrooms are bright, stimulating environments and the work of our children is proudly displayed. We have various outdoor areas that enhance structured play and learning outside the classroom. Chickens live on site and the children are responsible for looking after their welfare and collecting their eggs for use in cooking lesson.
All classes have access to and frequently use additional areas within school where learning can take place. These are designed for smaller intervention groups. They are calm spaces where children can access role play, sensory equipment and interactive technology.
Opportunities for learning are supported by experts in specific areas of the curriculum.
We are also continuing our work with the Football Association to enhance the physical education of our children through football.
