Growing Pride

We are very proud of our continually improving academy, come and visit and you will see PRIDE in action!

Oakway has been educating children in our local area for over 50 years, there have been many changes over that time but we have always been at the heart of the community; with generations of families attending. We are a large primary school catering for up to 630 children in 21 classes with extensive provision for pastoral care and children with additional educational needs. Visiting our school is highly recommended as we have spectacular grounds with extensive outdoor learning opportunities.

In 2014 we entered into a new era, becoming part of Hatton Academies Trust, a local family of schools working together to ensure the highest quality of education Working together with the other schools in the Trust provides opportunities for our children and staff to continually improve.

Involving and supporting families in their child’s learning and progress is essential if they are to reach their potential. At Oakway Academy we strive to support families in a variety of ways to ensure that children can transfer their learning experiences between school and home. Parent voice and feedback is essential to our continued self-evaluation and improvement, together we are Growing PRIDE at Oakway Academy.

Our mission Statement ‘Growing PRIDE’ underpins our ethos and drives everything we do in order to improve outcomes for all learners.  Our PRIDE values of Passion, Responsibility, Independence, Determination and Enjoyment represent the traits we are seeking to develop in our children so they understand how to be successful within the academy and British Society as a whole. We are a nurturing and welcoming community academy where relationships with children and families and each other as staff are at the forefront of everything we do.

The dedicated staff is the machine that drives our academy. Every member of staff believes that our children deserve the very best and as a result, they are always developing their skills to ensure the highest possible educational experiences.
