Welcome to Oakway Academy. Growing PRIDE.

Fantastic Children
Extra Curricular Clubs
Dedicated Staff

Welcome to Oakway Academy, a place where PRIDE is in abundance! We are very proud of our continually improving academy, come and visit and you will see PRIDE in action!

Pupils have attended a school on our site for 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 learners 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 September 2014 we entered a new era as a school, we became part of Hatton Academies Trust, a local family of schools working together to ensure the highest quality of education.  Opportunities to work together with the other schools in the Trust provide 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.

Dedicated staff are the machine that drives our academy. I am proud to work with such an energetic and committed team. 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.

Enjoyment is the last in our list of values but arguably the most important. We believe that all children are entitled to an educational experience that nurtures, challenges and develops them to become independent, responsible members of our community. This is achieved through enjoyment of learning and school life. When children enjoy themselves and feel safe and cared for they can reach their potential.
