On Tuesday the 13th of December all pupils and staff from Oaklands School enjoyed a fantastic performance of Cinderella from M&M productions. In no time at all our gym and lunch hall were transformed into a magical fairytale world. Pupils were transfixed from start to finish with the lights, fantastic costumes and up to date music to dance along too. Oliver and Amanda, 2 of our very own staff, were even invited to attend the palace ball, much to the great enjoyment of everyone! What a great morning! We are already looking forward to next year!
Class 2 from Oaklands school have had success with their enterprise project. They make and sell a different type of muffin each week. They advertise, take orders and deliver the cakes around the school.
At the end of last week, they were able to donate £100 of their profits to Social Bite, the money was added to their Christmas Lunch fund.
The staff at Social Bite were delighted to receive the cheque, hand delivered by the pupils.
Merry Christmas from the nurses and the therapy base. Enjoy your holidays!

We had an unannounced visit from the Care Inspectorate in October and have recently received the final report.
Two areas were graded, we received Excellent for ‘Care and Support’ and Very Good for ‘Quality of Environment’. Please see final report attached.
On the 29th of November Oaklands School was reapproved as a Centre of Excellence!
We are so proud of our children and young people and our dedicated staff team. Watch a trailer of the video that was played at the re-evaluation event.
A group of pupils from class 2 and 3 were invited to go on a very special Christmas shopping trip in John Lewis last week. We were greeted at the door by our friends from John Lewis including Markie the dog who was so pleased to see us! We had a wander around looking at the colourful decorations, listening to Christmas tunes and smelling delicious festive smells. We even met Buster the boxer and his furry friends! Together, we chose three decorations to hang on our Christmas tree back at school. We were then given the chance to choose our favourite toy or game that we got to take home with us. The whole trip was lots of festive fun!

The Yard is a purpose built indoor and outdoor adventure playground for children and young people with disabilities.
The Yard has been celebrating its 30th anniversary this November. Oaklands School joined in and celebrated this special event. Give it some welly for The Yard was a success in our school. During the special assembly on Friday the 18th of November, all pupils enjoyed a few welly themed activities. They played a find out what’s in the welly game and after that sensory activity we did a welly wang in the primary and secondary playground areas to see who could throw a welly the farthest.
The pupils from S1/S2 worked hard visiting the whole school to collect all the money from our friends.
We raised a total of £85.54!
A fantastic effort by everyone. Thank you very much and well done!
