Welcome to our school's website

On behalf of the staff, governors and the diocese, I warmly welcome you to our school, Oak CE Primary School. I have the great honour of being the Headteacher of the school which has been formed by the coming together of Thornton Lodge Nursery School, Dryclough CE Infant School and Crosland Moor Junior School on the 1st May 2016  It is a very large primary with over 1000 pupils and 180+ staff.   

My aim in leading the school is to continue to deliver and develop outstanding quality first teaching, utilising the unique Christian characteristics of the school, for all children between the ages of 2 and 11 within the local area.

Oak CE Primary School is a special place where the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting environment where everyone feels valued and safe; ideas can flourish and pupils can realise their full potential. By providing a well structured and engaging curriculum and by promoting good behaviour, we aim to enthuse, in all children, a love of learning as well as respect and care for each other.


Whatever the needs of your child and whatever special interests they have, we aim to ensure your child thrives at here, feeling safe, having fun and enjoying success. We want our pupils' time in our school to be memorable, build on what they know and can do and help them become lifelong learners.

We value highly the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The school cannot work in isolation. The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential one. Together we can set challenges and our partners can help us ask ‘how can we do this even better?'

I hope that you find all the information about the school that you need. If there is anything additional that you would like to know, please feel free to contact us. 

Kindest regards

D. Bendall

Headteacher.
