Description of the school

Oakfield Infant School is a smaller than average sized school. It serves a community of average socio-economic advantage and the number of free school meals is well below the national average. Pupils are largely of White British Heritage and 60% of these live outside the catchment area. There are a very small number of pupils with English as an additional language and the percentage of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is also below the national average. The school has Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision. It manages a Parent and Toddler Group, which meets every Wednesday morning.
