School Description

The school became a stand-alone academy in July 2011 and the sole member of the Oxley Park Academy Trust. The trust delegates aspects of governance to the local governing body. The board of trustees is the accountable body. The previous headteacher left in April 2018. The new executive principal was appointed in January 2018. The campus principal was appointed in April 2018. Oxley Park Academy is an above-average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils are White British. The school serves an area of low deprivation. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged is below the national average for primary schools. The school meets the government’s floor standards. These set the minimum expectations for pupils’ learning and progress. Inspection report: Oxley Park Academy, 19–20 June 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in 37 lessons. Senior leaders joined inspectors in the majority of observations. Inspectors held meetings with senior leaders, the executive principal and governors. Inspectors formally met with groups of pupils from key stage 2, and the views of pupils from all year groups were taken into account. Inspectors also spoke to a wide range of pupils during social times and during lessons. Inspectors looked at samples of pupils’ work and observed pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around school. Inspectors considered the views of staff from meetings with groups of staff and from the 54 staff who responded to the confidential questionnaire. Inspectors analysed 54 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire for staff and the 130 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire for pupils. Inspectors took into account the views of 114 parents who responded to the confidential Ofsted parental questionnaire, including 114 free-text responses. Documentation scrutinised by inspectors included the school’s plans for improvement, their self-evaluation, reports on attendance and behaviour, records relating to pupils’ safety, minutes of governor meetings, and information on pupils’ outcomes.

Pupil heat map key

01908 691691

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Oxley Park Academy Reviews

Average Rating:


“Fantastic school”
"> This is an excellent school, both my children have enjoyed their time here and have flourished. The teachers are fantastic and are committed to making sure each child receives exactly the help they need to reach their full potential.
“Used to be a great school, but standards have really slipped”
"> A school in decline, it used to be excellent but standards have really slipped and teachers now seem more interested in process than in educating their pupils. Pupils seem to exist in a comfort zone that stretches neither pupils nor teachers. I am frequently amazed at some of the gems of information my children come home with, unfortunately not in a positive way. I am not at all impressed with the standard of maths, the school seems to be just running on momentum and staff seem to do just enough, working to a lowest common denominator. Far too much senior leadership effort seems to have been wasted on their new site. Very disappointing.
