Head Teacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of Oaklands,

It’s a real honour to welcome you to our website in my new role as Head Teacher of Oaklands School.

Oaklands is an absolutely wonderful school full of amazing children and young people and fantastically committed and giving staff. I hope this comes across as you peruse the website.

Oaklands School provides education for children and young people with complex, long term additional support needs where the presumption of mainstream cannot be met and require a significantly modified learning environment. 

Our pupils have profound and multiple learning disabilities and often associated and potentially life limiting healthcare needs.

We are thrilled to all be back together as a school community as we emerge as a society from Covid. As ever, young profoundly disabled people and their families, such as those we have the privilege of working with at Oaklands, suffer the most when times are particularly hard.

We as Team Oaklands are here to support you and I would ask you not to hesitate to contact me or Clare (DHT), via the school office, should we, as a school, be able to offer you additional help or information about Oaklands.

We update our website regularly and our Twitter feed daily (@Team_Oaklands) so you can see at first hand what happens at Oaklands.

It’s an absolute privilege to be Head Teacher of such a wonderful school community and I look forward to meeting and working with you over the course of the year to ensure that your child or young person receives the support and challenge necessary to make this year Oaklands as happy, fulfilling and positive as possible.

With kind regards,

Rebecca Vaughan
