Oakway Academy joined Hatton Academies Trust in September 2014. The academy has an experienced senior leadership team with a clear structure of middle leaders across the school with responsibilities for subject and year group leadership. There are approximately 85 members of staff who each belong to a staff team. The CEO and Directors of Hatton Academies Trust are actively involved in supporting the leadership team and are regular visitors to the academy.
Oakway was recently inspected by Ofsted in April 2019. The overall judgement was that the academy requires improvement but the elements of Leadership and Management, Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare and Early Years were all good. This demonstrates the rapid progress made at the academy over the past three years. Its progress across key stage 2 in 2019 was above or in line with that made by all students nationally in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. This has significantly improved over the last three years.
