Welcome to our school's website

Welcome to Red Oak. We are a two form entry school with over 450 children, with the community at the heart of all we do.

At Red Oak our ethos radiates through our school, we have a calm environment rich with inclusion, nurture and aspiration. We aim to ensure our children achieve as well as children throughout Suffolk and nationally. It is our mission to continue to develop learning within our local community, to raise aspirations and enable all learners to fulfil their potential, whilst on the journey to become an Outstanding school.

We believe that all children who join our school deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their potential  academically, socially, personally, physically and spiritually. The staff, governors and Active Learning Trust are working to make sure that by the time pupils leave us:

1. They know what it feels like to be good at something & have achieved their very best.

2. They will love learning new things & want to keep on learning more.

3. They will understand just how incredible they are, develop self belief and have confidence in their abilities.

4. They will have grown healthy and strong and understand how to look after their body including their mind.

5. They will have known friendship and how to get along with other people, including how to solve conflicts.

6.They will feel part of their local community and be proud of Red Oak.

7. They will know how to keep safe, take calculated risks and know where to get support and help when needed.

Our school logo is ‘Where Learning is Living’, this is at the heart of all we do. We believe our children should gain an interest in a range of subjects and develop their general knowledge. We want all those who become part of our school community, whether a child or an adult, to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise their role in continuing to make our school ‘Outstanding’. This is why we are committed to ensuring we have a school that promotes equality and diversity, addresses unacceptable behaviour or bullying of all kinds, and actively embraces all races, religions, genders, sexual orientation and identity.

We are particularly proud of how well we use our PE Premium money to support the children at our school. As a result we have gained the Sports Active Platinum Award, after five consecutive years of Gold. We are also proud of the many quality marks the school holds. These include subject related and social and emotional. We have also been awarded a Centre Of Excellence through the Inclusion Quality Mark.

We hope you will gain a sense of the value that we place in each child and our desire to ensure that standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within the caring and happy community which makes our school special. We thank you for trusting us and we will do our best not to let you down.

Please drop in to talk with a member of staff if you have any questions, queries or concerns, we will be happy to help.

Mrs Heather Madsen
Executive Head Teacher
