Teaching and Learning

At Oakwood Academy, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive and dynamic learning environment for all our students. Our approach to Teaching and Learning is firmly rooted in research-based practices, quality-first principles, and a shared commitment to delivering the best pedagogy possible.


SEND Needs Research-Based Practices:


Understanding and catering to the diverse needs of our students is at the core of our educational philosophy. We actively engage in ongoing research to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field of special education. This allows us to adapt and evolve our teaching methods to provide the most effective support for students with SEND.


Quality First Teaching:


At Oakwood Academy, we believe that every student deserves the highest quality of education. Our teaching staff is dedicated to implementing evidence-based strategies that ensure every lesson is engaging, effective, and tailored to the individual needs of our students. Quality-first teaching is the cornerstone of our commitment to academic excellence.


Shared Approach to Best Pedagogy:


Collaboration is key to our success. We foster a culture of collaboration among our educators, support staff, and parents to ensure that the best pedagogical approaches are shared and consistently applied across our school community. By working together, we create a supportive and inclusive learning environment where every student can thrive.


Through our holistic approach to teaching and learning, we aim to inspire, empower, and equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potential.
