Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Ofsted

Oasis Academy Arena was inspected in November 2019. Just 18 months after the academy was judged to be inadequate we are pleased to say that the academy was judged to require improvement with leadership and management being judged to be good.

Strong and effective inclusive values underpin the school’s work. Staff apply these values well. They make pupils feel welcome and safe, no matter what their background. Ofsted (November 2019)

The academy would like to celebrate the progress that has been made to ensure that all the students receive the very highest level of education and we will take the recommendations made by Ofsted to ensure that each of our children are highly successful. We are on our journey to Good, and want to ensure that our young people receive an education they are proud of when they leave our academy - ready for their next steps. 

Some findings from our inspection are as follows:

  • Plans for each subject are clear and detail the knowledge to be taught.
  • Pupils told us that their school has improved in the past 18 months. This includes in teaching and in behaviour. Parents and carers are noticing these changes too.
  • The school has a centre for pupils with autism spectrum disorder. These pupils are well supported in lessons and get the same curriculum opportunities as other pupils.
  • The school provides extra teaching for pupils who find reading difficult. As a result of all this, pupils’ reading is improving quickly.
