Holistic Approach and Wellbeing

Balancing Wellbeing and Academic Success

At Oakleigh House School, we prioritise the holistic wellbeing of our pupils alongside academic achievement, recognising that genuine fulfilment drives academic success.

Through a caring community, we instil values of respect, consideration, and support, fostering an environment where every child's voice is heard and individual needs are met.

We feel that Oakleigh House is more than just a school, we feel like we are leaving our daughter with a family member. She is well cared for educationally and as a person.

Prioritising the Wellbeing of our Pupils

As much emphasis is put on the wellbeing of our pupils as their academic achievement. Unless children are happy, they will not fulfil their potential, therefore, we put significant effort into ensuring all pupils are well cared for, emotionally, as well as academically.

Pupils are positively engaged and focused in lessons with enthusiasm for the myriad of other opportunities that school has to offer.

We have a Caring Community to Support Every Child

We understand that a good education is not just about success in the classroom.

We pay equal attention to our children’s happiness, sociability and sense of belonging. Everyone at Oakleigh House learns the value of respect and consideration for others, using good manners and helping one another from a very early age.

We are a Gold Rights Respecting School

In 1989, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was adopted globally, emphasising children's entitlement to dignity, protection, full development, and participation.

Oakleigh House School proudly holds UNICEF's 'Rights Respecting School' status with GOLD Accreditation. Aligned with the UNCRC principles, this award fosters confident, caring, and responsible citizens within the school and broader community. The school has further advanced its Rights Respecting approach across three key areas since receiving the award.
