I hope that this website is informative and interesting for both prospective parents and current families of the academy.
I am proud to be the Executive Principal of such a wonderful school where learning is fun and our children learn in a thriving and happy environment. Our academy ethos is inclusive, inspiring, nurturing and respectful and we believe that children learn best in an environment where they feel safe and secure.
We have high expectations of achievement, attainment and behaviour and we are committed to every child achieving their absolute best regardless of background or starting point.
We believe that true education is a result of a partnership between parents, children and the academy and we will strive for that co-operation which will give your child the very best foundation for his/her educational career.
At Oaks we take pride in inspiring all learners to achieve their very best. We encourage our community as a whole to act with respect and tolerance for oneself and others.
We are committed to providing the very best opportunities for all our children to ensure that they achieve their full potential in all areas of their development.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils’ interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils’ good achievement in reading.
