About the Academy
The new Oakwood Primary Academy opened in September 2012 offering pupils:
More opportunities – to make sure every pupil achieves the very best that they can, AAT’s focus will be on working with the Academy’s senior leaders and teachers to raise achievement through quality teaching, curriculum innovation, online assessment programmes, increased attendance and individualised paths for personal growth and development.
More choice – the Academy’s partnership with other primary Academies in AAT as well as with Mosaica Education schools internationally, means the Academy will be able to share resources and experiences. The Academies will be working with partners both locally and internationally, meaning that pupils would enjoy a wider range of learning and leisure experiences at school.
Improved teaching and learning – Aurora Academies Trust will look at how things could be done differently and better and will make some changes immediately in the winter term of 2012/13. They will concentrate on improving standards throughout the school at a rapid pace, and improve the quality of teaching and learning through the introduction of a comprehensive staff training programme and online assessment.
Furthermore the new Academy will:
Raise aspirations – through the introduction of a new philosophy and ethos, based on Mosaica Education’s proven philosophy used internationally, to bring educational improvements to schools, pupils and communities worldwide. All pupils will have individualised paths for personal growth and development, with a focus on pupil self-awareness and self-esteem.
Increase Parent engagement and involvement – regular community events will be held where parents and other members of the local community are invited to see what the children have been learning, chat with staff and become more engaged in their child’s education.
