Visions & Values

Ethos & Values


At Oaktree, we realise that we have an essential role to play in shaping the lives of young people in our care. We aim for our students to leave happy and confident, with the talents and potential to go on to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

We aspire to offer the highest quality education delivered by our team of dedicated staff using quality resources, supported by a wide range of specialists.

We aspire to provide an environment that is welcoming, happy and caring that allows our students to feel safe and well looked after, encouraged in healthy living and  given opportunities for personal development and academic progress and experiences that make them fit and ready for work and further education.

In aiming to be ‘the best we can be’ all we do is underpinned by the following values:

B—be BRAVE in all you do

E—EVERYONE is treated the same

A—AIM high in all you try

R— RESPECT and care for each other  


Oaktree School will ensure that it actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

The values are officially taught through the Religious Education (RE) and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum and are further nurtured through the school’s ethos and promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) understanding.
