Welcome to King's Oak website
I have recently joined the academy as Interim Principal and will be staying at the academy until the appointment of a substantive Principal. I am delighted to be here. Although my background is primary, I have a lot of leadership experience with this being the sixth school that I have led. King's Oak has begun its journey towards being an outstanding academy and I am very proud to be able to be part of this challenging but exciting journey. We are now a 4-19 academy with the opening in September of the Acorn, our new primary phase. We want to get every day right for each child from their very first day in education. We are building a school which has a progressive, personalised curriculum from Reception to year 13, building on previous knowledge, exploring concepts in depth and focusing on key transition periods with a unique staffing structure and curriculum. Through our vision of an all-through Academy and close working relationships we will be at the forefront of 4-19 education and share our expertise with other schools and academies.
Our 2015 exam results were very disappointing. However, this year we will be working really hard so we achieve our highest results ever. We are developing the KOA way, which is about pupils, and staff, being ambitious, committed, reflective, resilient, brave and courageous. We want no pupil left behind. We are committed to ensuring that there will be effective teaching in every lesson, every day.
We believe that every child needs to feel that they belong, that they matter, and that they are valued for their unique qualities. We strive to meet the needs of all the pupils, including those in care with some having a personalised curriculum which meets their emotional and social needs.
Staff at King’s Oak all-through academy are committed to providing a rich learning experience for the pupils so they leave fully prepared for the next stage of their education and their journey into adulthood.
