Welcome to Oyster Park Primary School

Welcome to our school and to our website. We are forward looking and forward thinking because we want all our pupils to be well prepared for the next steps in their learning journey and their adult life. At the same time, we are proud of our rich heritage and the fact that we are at the heart of the local community.

Oyster Park Primary School values each and every child for their unique talents, interests, abilities and skills. We work hard to discover and develop these, so that whatever their starting point, every child has a range of opportunities to become a motivated and successful learner. We build positive relationships within a nurturing environment and promote a ‘can do, have a go’ attitude which helps children to become more creative, resilient and independent. Through developing these attitudes and skills, we see children have greater self-esteem and become more confident and considerate members of the whole school community. We want them to feel proud to be part of our Oyster Park Primary School family.

We recognise the importance of good literacy and numeracy skills but we also provide chances for children to learn and achieve beyond the classroom for example; through sport, music and, our very own Forest School. Staff work hard to make learning interesting, relevant and fun because they know that, when children enjoy school, they are more likely to do well in all areas of learning and to get along with each other.

We believe that good behaviour, manners, tolerance and social skills are essential in a happy, well run school and all staff act as positive role models to support and promote these British Values as key aspects of a successful school.

We are a school on a journey and welcome a close working partnership with our families so we can work together as the school continues to grow and develop into a place where everyone connected with school aims to be the best they can be and to make our school the best place it can possibly be.
