"...a ‘fully inclusive school where children’s varied needs are fully supported and met" - Ofsted 2018
Every child at Old Hall is recognised as an individual. We aim to know them well and our priority is that they; enjoy school, are happy and feel safe. We believe that children need to develop the basic skills of literacy and numeracy.
Simultaneously, we want them to leave us with a wide range of concepts, skills and attitudes that will enable them to become lifelong learners. Emphasis in school is placed on teaching our children to have; self-respect, respect for others, confidence and a sense of responsibility for their own well-being and for that of others and the environment.
Please visit us and see for yourself the uniqueness of our school.
