Values are the glue that gels us together and, at Oxley Park Academy, this is certainly the case. Our values run through everything we do, the way in which we behave and the way in which we treat each other. You will see our values just by taking a stroll through either site, and adults and children are able to verbalise these as well as show them in their every day activities.
Each ‘C’ has an identity and colour as you can see below. These are proudly displayed around both our academy halls and in every learning space. We focus on one 'C' every term and teach this through our curriculum and assemblies. To further enhance and embed our values philosophy, we regularly invite visitors in to relate the focus value to real life.
Within each 'C' we also promote our British Values. These, too, are related to every day and help ensure all our children leave Oxley Park Academy with a strong and confident belief in values, both for themselves and also those of the wonderful country in which we all live.
Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and show high levels of respect, both towards each other and to staff. (Ofsted)
My children enjoy attending each day. They find the work challenging and interesting. They really like the teaching staff and feel supported and have grown in confidence.
Working at Oxley is so special and unique. Everyone is so kind, well-being is at the forefront and our community are a delight. I love my job! (Teacher)
The school missions and values make my son want to be a part of the Academy and try his best. I feel proud that my sons are at Oxley Park and the Nursery and I feel that the changes being made are really positive!
The children are oozing with so much more ‘zest’ since the start of this year, which makes us as parents happier and excited about their future at OPA.
My children love the school! My eldest was quiet, didn’t want to learn, didn’t enjoy school. Now he is settled, has friends and has started to show improvements. My daughter loves her teachers and is extremely enthusiastic.
