The Oaktree School

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of HERMITAGE AND OAKTREE PARENTS ASSOCIATION and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

After 18 years dedicated to helping children learn, Mrs Glen Alder the Headteacher of The Oaktree School, St Johns Woking is retiring.  She has been a pillar of strength for her staff and the many hundreds of children who have attended the infant school over the years and will be greatly missed. 

The three form entry infant school has a fantastic reputation after being graded as Outstanding by Ofsted in 2008 under Mrs Alder’s leadership and continues to thrive today.  The school is known amongst other things for their commitment to outdoor learning and for providing an inclusive environment for all children to access. 

Whilst at the school children learn The Oaktree Way ‘to care for everyone and everything’.  Both Mrs Alder and HOPA, the PTA, are very passionate about environmental protection and the natural world and she has steered her staff and children in the right direction by winning the ECO schools green flag four times so far. 

Due to the current climate the school are unable to organise a big celebration event to thank Mrs Alder for all of her hard work and dedication over the years.  The staff, parents, Governors and Trust would like to publicly thank her and will miss her precision like detail in making sure that every child achieves the best they can be.  We wish Mrs Alder a very happy retirement and all the best for the future. 

In order to celebrate Mrs Alders many years at The Oaktree School staff are organising for an Alder tree to be planted and are hoping to create an outdoor story-time area with wooden throne and artificial grass for the children to enjoy and to commemorate her love of reading.  If you would like to donate money to thank and celebrate this cause then please do so via this link. 

Thank you for reading.
