Vision and Values



Oak Cottage is a friendly, community school that is ambitious for its pupils and offers a rich and exciting curriculum that will stimulate children to become lifelong learners.  We encourage pupils to be curious about the world around them, motivated to be the best that they can be and responsible for their actions.  We aim to develop confident individuals who have their own opinions, enjoy coming to school and achieve highly.  We work in partnership with parents and the wider school community to mould and inspire active, resilient and caring citizens of the future who have a respect for the people around them and make a positive contribution.

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
