Our School

My name is Neil Richardson and I am delighted to have been appointed to the role of Headteacher at Oak View Primary from September 2020.

My philosophy for education is one which is based around the edict of the ‘best by every child’.  I hold  a  strong  child-centred  approach  to  teaching,  where  consistency,  praise,  encouragement  yet challenge  are  key.  I  believe  that all children  are  amazing  and  have  unique  potential  waiting  to  be unlocked.

It  is  a  privilege,  as  a  teacher  and  a  leader,  to  be  able  to  inspire,  enthuse,  motivate  and nurture children to fully achieve this.  Myself and the staff are passionate and committed to the ethos of the school, providing a positive and safe place for your child to learn.

I very much look forward to getting to know you all and being part of this exciting school.
