Oakfield Primary School is a one form entry school and is divided into 7 single age group classes. There is also a 26 place nursery class, to which children may be admitted after their third birthday. There are approximately 210 children in main school.

The school has a Resource Provision, which caters for children with moderate learning difficulties. The Resource Provision is part of Tameside Council's provision for children with moderate learning difficulties and can accommodate 9 full-time pupils across Reception through to Year 6. The children are able to join in some mainstream lessons with support, together with withdrawal for individual and small group work.

At Oakfield, we offer a creative and innovative curriculum intended to meet the needs of all our children. Through good quality teaching and learning we hope to foster positive attitudes in children towards all aspects of their learning, their life and behaviour. We place great emphasis on social and moral aspects ofthe curriculum and believe that a good school continually helps children to learn self-discipline, a sense of responsibility for others and honesty in thought and action. The school aims to lay good foundations in knowledge, skills and understanding and in attitudes values and beliefs. We have high expectations of our children and strive to provide them with the very best educational opportunities.
