Oak Meadow Primary school is located on the eastern side of Wolverhampton.
We are a two form entry primary school and have nearly 420 children and nearly 65 staff.
The school has recently been rebuilt and is one of the first "Passive Haus" schools in the country, with a very efficient building, designed to save energy.
There are 14 classrooms in the school and they are all equipped with the latest interactive whiteboards, visualisers and computers.
The wide windows let in lots of light and are computer controlled. The two classrooms in each year-group can be joined together if the dividing doors are opened and each year group has a small shared study room.
The school hall that can be divided into two areas with large soundproof doors. We use the hall for PE, games, music, drama and as our dining room.
There is a stage set up at one end of the hall where the children perform the weekly class assemblies. We also stage performances in the hall such as our performance of "Oliver", "Peter Pan" and our Easter and Christmas celebrations. The children perform, make the scenery and operate the lights and sound equipment for many of the performances.
When you enter the school you will be greeted in the reception area and then you can wait in our spacious waiting area where you can look at the art work and view photographs of the school on the display screen.
The children enjoy learning in the new school with all the new equipment available to them. The children use a variety of laptop and netbook computers and the recently introduced iPads.
There are also a number of other teaching and study areas around the school, equipped with display equipment and there are cookery, reading, play and library areas.
Outside the school there are two playgrounds, one for the Foundation classes and one for KS1 and KS2 children, with exciting play areas that have adventurous play equipment for use at playtimes and lunch times.
There is also the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) that is used for games lessons and lunchtime sports.
Surrounding the school there are environmental areas with many different trees and shrubs and the school pond.
We also have a large school field on which we play sport.
The children also enjoy playing on the play equipment in our newly created "forest school" area. A variety of play equipment, huts and shelters and other equipment allow the children to experience an outdoor school environment.
Every day the school kitchen provides hot food for the children. A variety of different meals are available and there is also a vegetarian option. The hall is split into two and one half becomes the dining room where the children sit at movable tables. Children who bring sandwiches from home eat these in their classrooms.
