At Oaks Primary Academy we aim to provide a happy, safe and caring community, where everyone is encouraged and supported to achieve their goals.
Our vision is built upon the following values which are at the heart of our academy:
Ambitious – Determined to be the best we can be.
Collaborative – Working together as a team.
Compassionate – To support and encourage others.
Enquiring – Asking questions and seeking answers.
Enthusiastic – Enjoying and celebrating our learning.
Imaginative – We use our imagination to create and explore.
Inspirational – Motivating ourselves and other to succeed.
Pioneering –To be unique and lead the way.
We celebrate pupils demonstrating our agreed values through our achievement assemblies held on Friday afternoons.
All schools have a responsibility “to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
At Oaks Primary Academy we promote these values various ways, all of which can be viewed in the document below:
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.
