Welcome to Oatlands Infant School

This website is designed to give you an insight into the life and work of our school. I hope that as you navigate around the site you get a feeling for a vibrant community where each individual is valued and can achieve their full potential whatever their talents.

Like you, we want the very best for all our children. We believe a school should be a special place that allows everyone to be happy and enjoy their learning.

We have high expectations of all our children and endeavour to enable them each to achieve their potential. The curriculum we provide is broad and balanced, designed to develop children’s academic, social, emotional, physical and creative skills, providing each child with a secure foundation to all aspects of their development. The learning takes place both indoors and outdoors in stimulating environments.
