Welcome to Oakleigh School and The Early Years Centre
"Welcome to our website which we hope you will find useful, we will endeavour to show you why we think Oakleigh School is so special and some of the work we do here."
Headteacher at Oakleigh School
Oakleigh School caters for children aged 2 – 11 years who have severe and complex learning difficulties. Some of the children have profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) including sensory or physical needs. Other children have autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and severe learning difficulties (SLD) or PMLD.
Jenny's farewell to Oakleigh...
I would like to thank all the children and their families, staff, governors and colleagues for the wonderful gifts and good wishes I received on my retirement.
I have absolutely loved my time at Oakleigh and know under Ruth's leadership that the school will go from strength to strength.
Oakleigh is an inspirational place and I shall hold it very dear in my heart.

School trip to Southend-on-Sea!
Orange and Purple class and a wonderful day out to good old Southend-on-Sea. We stayed at the quieter end of the area, and had the beach to ourselves.
We are committed to providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum set within the framework of the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage through which children’s individual learning needs are met.
We place great importance on teaching our children those skills needed for maximum independence and quality of life in their future years by providing stimulating and challenging curriculum experiences to which each child has full access.
We consider every child as an individual and as unique, and plan for him or her accordingly. All aspects of the curriculum promote equal access for all pupils whilst considering gender, ethnicity, special needs, social circumstances, age, cultural and religious beliefs.
We actively celebrate the many different cultures, languages and festivals represented by the pupils and staff at Oakleigh School. We also pay particular attention to any individual needs concerning diet and collective worship. Multiculturalism is part of the fabric of Oakleigh.
