Headteacher's Welcome

            Welcome to Oakham Primary School

‘Pupils’ attitudes to learning are exemplary. They are keen to learn, ask questions and work well with each other so as to make excellent progress… Relationships between all in the school are very strong and the respect for each other is very evident.’ (Ofsted, 2013)

Oakham is an exciting place to learn, where our core purpose is to provide a learning-centred environment in which children will thrive and develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically; a place where learning is central to everything and learning is engaging and challenging. The ‘all round’ development of children is essential as we strive for the growth of creative, enquiring minds for success in school and beyond.


The development of strong relationships founded upon an ethos and culture which promotes fundamental values is an essential ingredient of this process. Through this we strive to promote reflective, collaborative and active learners with a genuine love of learning. By working together and promoting positive attitudes we can move forward with confidence, preparing children for their future lives.

The best way to really appreciate Oakham is to make a visit and see our learners in action.
