Welcome to Green Oak

Church of England Primary School and Nursery.

Head’s Welcome

Green Oak Church of England (VA) Primary School and Nursery is a small, single form entry school set at the heart of a local community in Godalming. We are lucky to have a well-established and thriving Forest School on our site for our pupils where they 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.

Our curriculum has been developed to incorporate the outdoor facilities wherever possible to encourage our pupils to develop their skills in a range of different contexts. Each child’s strengths and abilities are recognised and nurtured both inside and outside the classroom.

Reading is a key focus for Green Oak and we are proud to let everyone know that we achieved a National Reading Recovery award in July 2017 which recognises our success in ensuring that all of our pupils aspire to the life-long skill of reading. Our children really enjoy reading both in school and at home.

We have six core Christian values that inform and underpin the ethos of our school and we focus on one of these each week in order to help to prepare our children to fulfil their potential in the wider world and to become successful citizens of the future. Each week we welcome representatives from the local church to lead assembly to consider the value of the week.

We are committed to providing a welcoming atmosphere at Green Oak where staff and children work together to create a happy, safe and caring learning environment in partnership with parents, governors and the local community.

We welcome visits from prospective parents so please come and make an appointment to meet me and to have a tour of our school.
