The Oval School is situated in Yardley, just off Bordesley Green East and Meadway.
We have over 600 pupils on role and a further 50+ in nursery. We are a successful and constantly improving school. We are currently moving from being a two form to a three form entry school and as of September 2012 we will be three forms up to year 3.
Pupils join us from a range of backgrounds. We presently have 8 religions and 23 races in school. A truly 'multicultural community' we celebrate all the major world religions and our religious education features intercultural topics such as places of worship and holy books - so all of our community are included and valued.
We have Quality Mark status 2011 for our school standards in English and Maths work and a Civic Society award for our schools environmental work, particularly on school allotment. We are also very proud to have acheived Gold Award from Food For Life.
We are an inclusive school, we seek to provide the best possible opportunities for all pupils. We are currently learning through a very creative topic based approach focussing on British history and geography for two terms and an international study for the third.
We have a range of extra curricular activities reviewed termly e.g. drama, homework club, football and ICT club.
Our school invests in ICT to prepare our pupils for the world of work. We are very lucky to have a dedicated ICT suite along with sets of laptops for use within the classroom.
Our mission statement as created together with parents, pupils, teachers and governors is:
Together we are achieving success
