We are a rapidly developing primary school focused on the development of the whole child.

At Oldfleet we believe that all children should have the right to a range of opportunities that promote self development and independence. All we ask is that parents and carers ensure that their children attend school regularly, are punctual, behave to the best of their ability and support the learning opportunities that we initiate.

Your choice of a primary school for your child is a crucial one. You will want your child to achieve academically, and we will do our utmost to ensure that this happens. But you will also want to know what kind of person they will become as you entrust them to us.

Call the school office and make an appointment to talk about your child and what we can offer them. In the meantime have a look through our twitter feed to see latest news from Oldfleet.
