Our latest Ofsted Inspection took place two years ago. At the time Oxley Park had a couple of years of change with extreme overcrowding due to pupil numbers, a brand new campus being built, moving one school into two campuses, launching a new nursery, and all at the same time with no Senior Leadership for some of the time. However, a new and experienced Leadership took over and a thorough and detailed plan to move through the major changes was implemented with immediate effect.
Ofsted arrived 6 months into this turnaround and although they recognised the plan was right and they were highly complimentary of the new vision, we just needed a bit more time! So back in June 2018 they were only able to give us the rating of Requires Improvement. However, we are due for a re-inspection any time from April 2020 to December 2020 and we are extremely confident of a very strong and positive outcome for our academy. Today, Oxley Park is unrecognisable from June 2018 - the plan has come alive and the outcomes are so much more than we could ever have dreamt of! Our results are amazing, all massively improved, well above average and all in line with other local good and outstanding schools.
What you get with Oxley Park today, is the fantastic outcomes above national just like a good or outstanding school, an exciting curriculum and wonderful primary journey of education. However, more than this, your child gets a wonderfully unique experience different from any other primary school around. A learning environment designed solely with children at the heart, two amazing campuses with resources second to none (sports pitches, fields, outdoor learning, art studio, STEM centres, the list goes on!) and a vision that is exciting, modern and holds children centre to any thinking - even if adults think we are mad!
As parents you can be absolutely reassured that the care for your child is second to none. We absolutely pride ourselves how family orientated we are even though we are such a big school. Our Sanctuary provision is second to none in supporting your child's well-being. We do everything in our power for every single individual child and they feel loved and cared for .
Please, before you judge us on an Ofsted report which took place in a totally different period two years ago, come and see the real thing of how we exist today! We are special, we are unique and we need to be seen. Words on paper don't do us justice! You are very welcome indeed at any time to come and visit - just give us a call. We promise you we will challenge your first impressions from a two year old report.
Thank you for giving us the chance to share with you our wonderful academy.
Please note due to Covid-19 Ofsted have delayed all inspections. This may now mean Oxley Park will not be inspected until 2021. This gives you more reason to find out about us today and please don't go on this report. It shows the strength of our vision but not what we have become and continue to develop even further!
