The Oakwood Academy Parent Teacher Association - Upcoming Events
The Oakwood Academy Parent Teacher Association is a partnership between parents and teachers to support all the school community. Meetings are held during the school year and all parents are welcome to attend. If you would like to attend or if there are any issues that you wish to put before the committee, please contact Ms Stokes. Click here for more information about upcoming PTA events.

PE Footwear Letter
As the poor wet weather now seems to be upon us it is essential that we ensure students wear appropriate footwear for PE. This is to safeguard our students from potential injury during Football/Rugby modules. Health and safety regulations mean students must wear a studded boot in PE lessons during Football & Rugby modules. This is to reduce the risk of slipping over on wet grass & protecting feet during contact sport. Click here for more details.
