We are a Good school on the path to becoming an outstanding one, according to Ofsted, having been re-inspected in January 2018. We have become an Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence and work closely with the National Autistic Society (NAS). We have the distinction of being Leicester City’s first NAS accredited school and as such we are committed to high quality continuous professional development for all of our amazing staff. Oaklands staff are highly skilled and friendly, and work closely together to ensure all our children meet their full potential, academically, personally and socially. We have developed three distinctive curriculum pathways to meet the needs of our children and our own assessment system OPAL which enable us to measure and celebrate the small steps of progress our wonderful children make. Full induction will be provided.

A supportive team used to working together
The opportunity to work within a distinctive curriculum pathway supported by expert colleagues and a skilled Pathway Leader
Excellent opportunities for continuing professional development
A friendly and stimulating environment in which to work
