About Us

Oakfield House School is situated between Blackpool and Preston in Salwick near Kirkham. Oakfield is a country house set in eight acres of beautiful parkland and dates from the 1800's. The school is easily accessible from the M6, M55 and the M65. The pupils attending our school come from various towns in the surrounding areas. 

Oakfield House School was opened in September 1998 and is registered for 42 boys and girls aged 5 years to 12 years. The pupils in our school have a range of educational needs including Social and Emotional Mental Health Difficulties which have made it hard for them to cope with mainstream primary schooling. We also provide a unique provision for children with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and Children with Complex Needs in a purpose built facility attached to the school.

Learners will build an advanced understanding of how to provide quality teaching and how to influence and support learners. Some of the areas of development include:

  • Contributing to the implementation of learning activities
  • Evaluating the performance of lesson plans and how to improve for the future
  • Working independently in teaching group and individual activities
  • Working in partnership with teachers to help support and deliver lesson plans and objectives
