Our aims and values

We seek to ensure that all children feel valued, included and secure during their time at our school. We nurture the Christian values, skills and attitudes that will enable them to develop into happy, responsible and confident young people, well adjusted to living in a diverse and ever-changing world.

Founded upon the principle of meeting the progressive needs of all children at the school, whatever their capabilities, we aim to:

  • Value the individual. 
  • Provide the resources required to teach the school curriculum and offer equal opportunities for all children to participate in it.
  • Foster awareness of the arts, music, science, technology and literature.
  • Develop an understanding of the interdependence between people and their environment.
  • Encourage spiritual and moral development and an understanding of other faiths, cultures and societies, as well as our own.
  • Support self-evaluation by both staff and children.
  • Develop a positive partnership with parents and the community.


Safeguarding Statement

At Oakridge Parochial Primary School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Gloucestershire Children’s Safeguarding Board and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr. David Williams -Headteacher

The Additional Safeguarding Lead is Mrs. Rachael Modaley (Class 2 teacher Oakridge)

The Designated Person for Looked After Children (LAC) is Mrs. Becki Gray (SENDCO at Bisley and Oakridge School). 

The Child Protection Policy is available under policies on the school website.

If you are concerned about the safety of a child, you can email the DSL on head@bisleybluecoat.gloucs.sch.uk
