I would say it has improved in my current 3 years of attending Oakwood school but I feel it still has a long way to go in terms of being a 5 star school, I feel if the school had a higher budget and had a few more stricter but kinder teachers than it might push it up to a 4 star. The other issue I have with the school is I would say the whole management of the school should improve, I feel the behaviour system works but not effective as people re-offend and disturb lessons which throws everyone of focus, we are in Year 9 and choosing/chosen our options and if this behaviour carries on in Year 10 and Year 11 than I feel that our scores will be affected, I would like to see more praising students by rewarding them as I see more punishments handed out than rewards, in conclusion I would say a stronger discipline inforced and more rewards given out. Teachers should be firmer and and more rewarding, the school should work on the behaviour system and work out where the problems lie in re-offending as this should not and I won’t allow it to affect study in my GCSE’s. Good school, improving all the time but still got a way to go with the new headteacher, he is a firm but fair and is passionate about this school, teachers should get more commendation dealing with students ranging from 11-16 5 Days a week and should get a raise as we all take them for granted and really do not thank them enough for their work.
I find all the staff at Oakwood to be professional, helpful and caring. Oakwood has improved immeasurably since Mr Potten took over and I, as a parent, support him and his team of dedicated hard working staff completely.
