Welcome from Cathy Clarke, Headteacher
Welcome to King’s Oak Primary School. I have been Headteacher here for six years and I am so proud of what we are achieving. Ours is a welcoming, vibrant and inclusive school where all children are valued as individuals and their achievements are celebrated. Through creating an exciting and supportive learning environment, we capture children’s interest, increase their knowledge and raise their aspirations. We work in close partnership with parents and carers so that our children develop as confident learners who are equipped to succeed.
Our wonderful pre-school provides an exceptional start to each child's educational journey and children continue to develop as enthusiastic early learners in our Nursery; we have four nursery classes, with three intakes per year. We currently have three forms of entry, from Reception to Year 3 and two forms of entry from Year 4 to Year 6. Our highly recommended specialist resourced provision for children with autism is at the heart of our school and we also benefit from close links with Norbiton Children’s Centre which is situated in our grounds.
As a result of recent expansion, we have twelve brand new classrooms, a new performance hall and specialist sports pitches, set in expansive grounds.
Children at King’s Oak enjoy a curriculum that is rich and varied. All those involved with our school recognise its unique qualities and we are very much a community working together to provide a secure, happy and inspirational learning environment, for everyone. Our highly skilled staff are committed to providing a range of curriculum-enhancing learning experiences, including visiting authors, artists and sports people. School and individual achievements are celebrated regularly in class and during weekly assemblies.
School life is about much more than academic achievement alone. We offer a rich array of extra curricular activities including our popular breakfast and after school club and a variety of other clubs, from Spanish Cooking to Teddy Tennis and Football to Bubbleworks Science.
We are committed to building strong and positive relationships with our parents and carers as we believe that, by working together, we can provide the very best education for our children. Parents and carers are welcome to join our P.T.A. which organises several fun and fundraising events each year, for our whole school community. Many parents and carers become even more involved in school life and regularly volunteer their help in class.
We have set up our website to provide information and to celebrate our school's achievements and those of our children. We hope that you will take time to browse and enjoy the highlights of our school. If you have any further questions, please do contact our school office; we would be delighted to help you.
