The status of Oakfield Short Stay School as a Pupil Referral Unit does not allow for a school governing board, instead it has a Management Committee that fulfils many of the school governors' functions.


A Message from the Chair of the Management Committee


The Management Committee are very proud of being part of Oakfield Short Stay School and the very committed staff team. We want to share in the success of Oakfield in allowing pupils to aspire and achieve their best. We are convinced Oakfield makes a difference to children's lives and sets children on the path to a fulfilling life.
