Welcome to Green Oak
Church of England Primary School and Nursery.
On behalf of our children, staff and the Interim Executive Board (IEB) governors, I would like to welcome you to Green Oak Church of England (VA) Primary School and Nursery. We are a small, single form entry school set at the heart of a local community in Godalming. During the last year we have made significant improvements across our school which has been reflected in our end of year academic results. Our children have made very good progress in Reading, Writing and Maths and are now at or above national expectations for Reading and Maths.
Christian values inform and underpin the ethos of our school and we focus on one of our values each half term to help prepare our children to fulfil their potential in the wider world and to become successful citizens in the future. Each week we welcome representatives from the local church to lead assembly to consider these values in more depth.
Pastoral care is a key strength of our school and communication and relationships with parents and the local community are strong. The children thrive in a happy, safe and caring learning environment.
We are fortunate to have a well-established and thriving Forest School on our site where our pupils can learn outdoors all year round. We also have a large, productive allotment with a poly tunnel where children plant and grow fruit and vegetables. We have our own pig, goats and chickens which the children visit and feed. Next to our small farm there are substantial playing field facilities which the children can access all year round and we also have two playgrounds which have various apparatus for the children to play on.
A wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities are available for our children – including Forest School, football, multi sports skills, drama, choir, dance, art/craft, gardening, rugby and a debating/enrichment club. There is something for everyone to try.
We welcome visits from prospective parents so please call the school office on 01483 422924 to make an appointment to meet me and take a tour of our school to see the learning opportunities we can provide. I look forward to meeting you.
