Our children are faced with immense difficulties.
Some have life-limiting conditions, others have severe problems with sight, hearing, communication and mobility.
We also have children with severe autism, for whom every day is a constant challenge, and other young children who, with our early support, can move into mainstream school. They and their families need continual support.
Yet Oakleigh School is filled with laughter, comradeship, achievement and the most life-affirming spirit!! Every day our children learn new skills, new understanding and new ways in which to control their lives.
But there are always financial pressures. Our children need an enormous amount of stimulating activities, specialist equipment, highly-trained staff & therapists to help them progress; this specialist provision is extraordinarily expensive.
Every penny donated to Oakleigh School and the Early Years Centre works hard to help support the lives of our pupils,improving the quality of their lives both now and in the future.
The staff and patrons of the nearby York Arms Public House saved a fantastic amount of over £400 in their bar-side bottle money pots in aid of Oakleigh School. A cheque was presented to the Headteacher Jenny Gridley on 7th March 2013. A big thank you to the York Arms!
