Residentials at Oatlands

OJS_Dearne Valley Residential (1)

At Oatlands, we offer two residentials to our pupils - a two night, three day stay in year four,  and a four night, five day stay in year 6. 

School residentials play a vital role in the development of pupils and over the years we have seen the benefits to both learning and confidence in children. The range of activities they take part in allow them the opportunity to step outside of their 'comfort' zone and into their 'stretch' zone. We understand the role that nature plays in children's spiritual development and through our residentials, we promote their responsibility to take care of the natural world around them.

Our two residentials build on a range of skills and each year we bespoke the learning objectives and outcomes to the children in that particular cohort. We work closely with the centres we visit to design a programme that meets the needs of our pupils. We also aim to:

  1. Develop independence
  2. Improve confidence and self-esteem
  3. Develop teacher and student relationships
  4. Engage and motivating all pupils
  5. Make memories!
