We returned from the holidays and launched into the celebration of our conversion to the Oaks Academy Trust.
We are now part of The Oaks which is itself supported by the multi-academy GLF Trust, which has 30 primary and secondary schools under its umbrella across five local authorities. It offers support and development to enable each school to offer the very best in education.
A special mosaic was created by the whole school community as one of a number of events organised during Collaboration Week, held to mark the change-over and to encourage our pupils to think about teamwork.
The Oaks Academy Trust was created in 2014 with Banstead Infant School and Warren Mead Junior School. It was upgraded to Sponsor status and we at The Vale officially joined on December 1.
“We are very excited to join Oaks Academy Trust – a family of schools with which we already work very closely with. The expertise and support available within the Trust will enable all those working in our school community to continue to achieve their very best.”
Approved by the Secretary of State for Education, the conversion will allow us to have more control over our day-to-day running within the support network of both The Oaks and GLF.
The Collaboration Week saw all pupils developing teamwork skills with many related activities.
Children took part in a special assembly held to mark the conversion and felt that “Communication, Cooperation, Participation and Perseverance” were all going to be very important qualities to enable the new team enjoy success.
We are holding open mornings on Wednesday 12th June (9.00 – 10.30am) and Saturday 15th June (10 – 11.30am). We invite all those who are looking for Year 3 places for September 2019; Reception places for September 2020 or in year admissions for other year groups.
There will be tours by students and a presentation by the Co-Headteachers.
Please do come and visit.
