Facilities

Since moving to our current site in January 2012, we have worked very hard to make the school “our primary school”. We have added to the environment to enhance the learning and enjoyment of our pupils. As part of the conversion, disability access and facilities where catered for.

A fully equipped sports centre with male and female changing facilities, medical office and connecting outdoor sports compound. The outdoor compound is used during lessons, lunchtimes and play times for a range of activities. The sports centre is used for Physical Education lessons as well as after school clubs and group functions.

Wildlife Area

A fully fenced wild area which allows wildlife and plants to grow freely. This area is particularly helpful when teaching Science and helping to explain habitats, eco-systems and the natural environment in which we live.

The wildlife area has a seating area for pupils and a story telling chair allowing them to develop story telling skills, become confident talkers and use their imaginations to create exciting stories.

Breakfast Club

The breakfast club runs daily before school to allow pupils to come in early and receive help with class work and homework while enjoying a healthy breakfast. Places are strictly limited so if you wish for your child to attend Breakfast Club then please let the main office know of your interest. We charge £10 a week per child.

Red Oak Primary has a wonderfully large field which allows pupils to participate in a variety of sports and activities both at break times and lunchtimes. Depending on the term, suitable pitches and athletic environments are laid out on the field to allow pupils access to a variety of sports.

We have a tyre park which is available to each class in school at least once a week so that the facility can be enjoyed by all.

We also have playground facilities for pupils to enjoy such as the ‘Snug’ at the edge of the field as well as playground markings. These painted areas were developed by pupils within the school and allow a range of counting and physical skills to be developed.

We are very lucky that we have access to a specific area at the back of the school for gardening and growing. This area has specially designed planting beds which allow pupils to develop their understanding of how plants develop and what is needed to grow vegetables and fruits. There is a regular Gardening Club run by staff which pupils are welcome to attend as well as links to curriculum work around growing.
