Oulton Primary is a recently refurbished school that boasts an attractive spacious working environment. Opened in June 2012, the multi-million pound, architect-designed building is fit for education in the 21st century. It includes a room for Extended Services, as well as purpose-built classrooms and a large sports hall.
At playtime the children have access to large playgrounds with adventure playgrounds for both KS1 and KS2. There is a separate Early Years playground, with specialist equipment. We also have a beautiful field with lots of open spaces to play and learn.
We are developing an environmental area for science studies (“The Wild Area”!) which now includes a bird hide and we have numerous gardening plots around school which are tended to by the children, staff and volunteers.
Our gardeners can grow fruit, vegetables and flowers in the grounds and take care of the herbs. We keep rabbits, chickens and ducks in a large outside enclosure, thanks to Mr Westmoreland!
