All Academy policies can be viewed below.

We are fully committed to safeguarding physical and emotional welfare of our students. We expect all students at The Oakwood Academy to behave responsibly towards one another and to demonstrate respect for all and self-discipline.

We also promote an environment where bullying is unacceptable. This is given a high priority in all elements of learning, coaching and mentoring. 


Everyone at The Oakwood Academy will be treated equally and be encouraged to be positive in their attitude to everybody outside the Academy – treating and respecting others as we would like to be treated ourselves.

All students are entitled to all that a good education offers, irrespective of their social circumstances, ethnicity, gender or ability.

Compliance with the Equality Act 2010

The Oakwood Academy is committed to the fair treatment of all individuals.  In accordance with the Equality Act 2010, we are committed to making sure that no individual experiences less favourable treatment, discrimination or harassment because of their age; disability; gender identity; marital and familial status; pregnancy and maternity status; race; religion or belief; and sexual orientation.

We embrace our general duty to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations, in all that we do.  Applications for admission from all potential students will be considered in line with the published admission arrangements.

Duty to Make Reasonable Adjustments 

The Oakwood Academy's buildings are accessible for disabled students, staff and visitors so that they may be integrated fully into Academy life.

Children with Statements of Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Local children with Statements of Special Educational Needs (SEN), and those looked after by the City Council, will have a priority place at the Academy. We will seek to ensure that every child has a full entitlement to the curriculum and that his/her individual needs are met.
