Welcome to Oakwood Primary Academy

I am delighted to be able to welcome you to Oakwood Primary Academy. We are very proud of our school and hope that you find the information here useful. I also encourage you to look at our Facebook page to see many of the exciting things that happen at school, every day.

Oakwood Primary Academy is a two-form entry primary school, situated in Southway. We currently have 308 pupils on roll, from Reception through to Year 6. 

We believe that every pupil should achieve their full potential and all staff are committed to ensuring this happens. Alongside a commitment to academic excellence, our Academy is underpinned by our four core values of ‘inclusion, collaboration, democracy and excellence' We consider these to be integral to our pupils’ success and well-being.

These values help us to instil a love of learning and a commitment from all pupils, staff and visitors. 

Our links with parents, carers and wider family are very important to us - the school is at the heart of the community and we know that educating children is a joint responsibility and we value the support of all our families. Our curriculum is not only exciting and engaging for children but also provides many opportunities for parents to get involved in the learning that goes on every day at school and our curriculum model ensures that we have consistent, whole-school approaches to the teaching of Reading, Writing and Maths.

I couldn't be prouder to be leading the staff team here at Oakwood Primary Academy and know that through their continued commitment and dedication we can provide an engaging, inspiring and knowledge-rich curriculum that meets the needs of all of our pupils. 

We really hope that you will choose Oakwood Primary Academy as the school of choice for your child and we look forward to welcoming you. If you would like to find out more or would like to arrange a visit please contact our School Office.
