Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community



Current leaders, including those responsible for governance, have brought about clear improvements in safeguarding, behaviour and attendance
Ofsted, 2018

Following our Ofsted inspection in March 2018, the Academy was found to be Inadequate but with appropriate actions being taken for delivering improvement

While the result has been hugely disappointing for all of us, both the staff and the wider Oasis Community Learning family are fully committed to rapidly delivering change at the academy, so that within 18 months every student will be receiving the outstanding education they deserve.

Our Rapid Improvement Plan is our core guiding document that will direct our strategies and resources. The plan enables us to monitor pupil progress so that we can ensure that every member of the Arena family is getting the support and challenge they need.

The academy was had a visit from Ofsted in February 2019 where the academy was judged to be taking effective action for the removal of serious weaknesses.  Click here to view the report.

We welcome you to attend our half-termly Parent and Carer Forum meetings, published in our regular newsletters, where our Principal will discuss improvements and listen to parents, carers and students' feedback to further inform our plans. You are most welcome to send us feedback too via yourarena@oasisarena.org.

We are confident that with our parents' and the community's support, the plans we have in place will ensure that standards, teaching and learning and the achievement at the academy will swiftly and sustainably improve.
