Our Aims and Ambitions for the Future

Encouragement, support and motivation are the key ingredients in the success of Oakmere Primary School. Our team of inspiring and creative teachers go that extra mile to feed children’s appetite for learning.

Their dedication and hard work ensures that each and every child is encouraged to aim high and be the best that they possibly can be.

Four reasons why your child will thrive at Oakmere Primary School:

    supportive environment.
