What do we believe?
At the heart of our provision is our whole school motto - ‘Growing and Succeeding Together’.
We strongly believe that our youngest children need to develop strong roots in order to grow, bloom and blossom.
Our Early Years Unit aims to develop these strong roots, providing children with the best possible learning experiences as embark on their journey through Oakhill.
We take a balanced approach to learning and development here at Oakhill with a careful balance between independent and structured learning opportunities.
We have strong links to outdoor learning with our established onsite Forest School and large outdoor learning areas.
Our indoor environments focus on bringing the outdoors in. We have created calm and comfortable environments that allow children to feel secure, relaxed and ready to learn.
We have carefully created areas for children to explore independently and learn collaboratively.
We strongly believe in promoting sustainability with our children and are looking forward to developing the school Eco-Council in order to help us play our part in looking after our world.
