Welcome back!

It’s brilliant to have (almost all!) of our children and young people back to school today!

It’s great to be back together and everyone seems to be settling well in to their new classes.

Particular mention to our new P1 and S1 pupils. It’s a big day for them and their families and they can be very proud of their first day. 🙂

Here’s a few photos from today but as ever, there’s lots more over on our Twitter feed @Team_Oaklands


Happy Holidays!

From all the staff and pupils at Oaklands, thank you all for your support of the school over the past year.

It’s a privilege to be Head Teacher of such a wonderful school.

Wishing you all a very happy holiday.


The Best School in Edinburgh?

What a wonderful day for all of Team Oaklands!

Our school community came together to celebrate our amazing children and young people today.  There was even a very special Call and Response  for our very own, Morna.

Does this level of pride ever diminish, I wonder?

As ever, lots more over at  @Team_Oaklands. 🙂

Not quite finished…

We’re not quite “finished”!

This month’s functional core word across the school is “finished”.  It’s a great way to end another fantastic year developing our inclusive communication approach here at Oaklands.

Parents – look out for your postcards, with symbols, signs and ideas for practising “finished” at home!
