My name is Mrs Sarah Coleman and it will be my privilege to be the first Headteacher and custodian of our brand-new school. I have been the Headteacher of Homefields Primary School in Chellaston for the past eight years and I am delighted to bring to Oak Grange my experience, my knowledge, but mostly, my passion and desire for creating exciting teaching and learning experiences for all children.
I am as passionate now about inspiring children to grow, thrive and learn as I was at the start of my career, twenty-five years ago! I am very much looking forward to creating a place where your child will be safe, nurtured and inspired.
On an initial visit to the site of the school, my attention was caught by the mighty oak tree. It is planned this tree stay as part of the new housing development and will be close to the school.
This majestic tree inspired the beginnings of a vision. A vision of a school where children grow.
Oak Grange Primary School will be a place where “tiny seeds become mighty trees,” where wisdom of knowledge and of life are embedded in the roots of who we are, and who we aspire to become
It will be my privilege to welcome your child and you to our school.
Mrs Sarah Coleman
