Welcome from our CEO
Elaine Parkinson - CEO
Welcome to the Oak Learning Partnership. We are a vibrant and successful cross-phase Multi Academy Trust uniting primary, secondary and special schools within Greater Manchester. Inclusion is at the heart of our Trust, underpinned by our core values of Aspiration, Resilience, and Integrity.
Our Trust has developed from a close collaboration between our schools and our mutual desire to ensure that every young person is included. Our schools enjoy a shared vision and identity and draw strength from collaboration, whilst each school is encouraged to maintain its individuality. Our vision is to give our young people a highly-effective education in a truly inclusive environment.
The strength of Oak Learning Partnership can be found in this inclusive ethos, and having the skills to stretch and challenge the most able pupils and the expertise to ensure the needs of vulnerable pupils and SEN pupils are prioritised and met. We nurture self-confidence and mutual respect in all our young people, so that our community can thrive. We have established a very credible group of trustees who fully support what we want to achieve.
Our core central team, including business and operational support, contributes heavily to driving our vision forward, and our teaching school broadens our offer to provide additional capacity. Our rounded vision enhances our provision and drives efficiency for each of our schools, which means more money going into teaching and learning.
We aim to develop strong working partnerships, internally and externally, which have a positive impact on children’s achievement, safety and well-being. We seek to maintain each of our school’s current strengths and secure successful futures for all our stakeholders in our schools. This is supported by a collaborative culture with shared values and a clear moral purpose.
Partnership with our parents and our strong links with the local community increase the sense of belonging which we strive to instil in our young people. We encourage them to aim high together and overcome obstacles to achieve their true potential, so that they can enjoy their educational journey as they take steps to a fulfilling future.
