Academisation Consultation

Welcome to the Oakfield Schools Federation’s academy consultation webpage. This page has been set up to provide important information regarding the proposal for both Oakfield Infant and Junior Schools to become academies and join Smart Multi Academy Trust.

Our primary focus at this time is to ensure that all stakeholders understand our proposals and have ample opportunities to seek clarification and provide feedback. To facilitate this, we will be hosting meetings and providing documents to help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the proposals, and following the meetings stakeholders will be asked to complete a survey.

The stakeholder consultation period will run from 12 February to 10 March 2024 inclusive and will involve parents, carers, staff, pupils, and the wider community in discussions regarding the proposal for Oakfield Infant and Junior Schools to convert to academy status and join Smart Multi Academy Trust.

As well as the letter and FAQ document available to download from this page, we would like to invite our stakeholders to attend one of the following joint school meetings (held in the Junior School Hall due to available space) to learn more:

The information sessions will provide an opportunity to inquire about academy status and its impact on the schools. Representatives from the Governors, school leadership, and Smart Multi Academy Trust will be present to answer any questions you may have. To attend, please click here to book your place.

If you are unable to attend the consultation meeting but would like further information, you can contact the school via telephone or email [email protected]
