Welcome to Oak Class!  



Oak Class  Staff

Class teacher- Lesley Hall

Teaching assistants- Paula Green and Myra Rice



Oak class have a flexible space designed to allow students to develop skills for work and independent living skills.  We are equipped with a full kitchen, classroom area, toilets and social space.

In Post 16, we aim to facilitate the generalisation and development of skills within real-life contexts to enable our pupils to prepare for the next stage in their lives, usually a college, work placement or social care placement.  Pupils work towards a variety of accreditations and qualifications including ASDAN Personal Progress, ASDAN Personal and Social Development and ASDAN Bronze Silver Gold award.  Our aim with each student is to support them to achieve their potential as an individual both academically and socially.  We have a highly practical curriculum model with lots of opportunities to access other provisions and the local area.

Spring Term 2024

This term our topic is World War 2 with a focus on being a child during this time. We will be visiting the Atkinson library and museum to support research and visit a very special exhibit of a Lancaster bomber and Spitfire plane, visit Liverpool museum and the Pier Masters house to experience 1940's Liverpool during the war, build our very own air raid shelter in class with a collection of memorabilia to support role play and creative writing whilst developing a deeper understanding of WW2. Cookery sessions will be focussed on WW2 traditional recipes, including Bubble and Squeak and an eggless sponge! We will conclude the end of our topic with our very own VE day party, creating our own decorations and cooking delicious party food.   

As part of work related learning the class have developed their own community cafe enterprise. Pupils have developed a Friday breakfast roll cafe, planning the advertising, budgeting and shopping for ingredients, preparing all food and providing a delivery service to staff. All money raised from this enterprise will go towards a class reward trip at the end of term.

We will be accessing a variety of community based sessions such as Dunes Leisure centre, Wheels for all and sporting competitions with MSLD partnership. We will be continuing our links with the local supermarkets and work experience placements including MeCycle, Birkdale community hub, Bridge Inn farm, Apple of My Eye and Park Lodge.
