What People Say About Our Community

"I feel valued as a leader within this trust, and know that I’m constantly being challenged and developed in the most supportive and caring environment."

Mrs K NgBell - Assistant Headteacher

"I am very impressed with Oakthorpe Primary School's work. People do need to learn to build up some resilience, and being given strategies to cope in a modern world underpins that. There needs to be a change in culture and by starting with the youngest generation, society can achieve and youngsters will achieve their potential confidently."

Andrew Bridgen MP

"Working within the trust has given me the confidence, skills and training needed to develop as a leader. I have had the opportunity to develop my own and others practice within my own school, schools within the trust and schools in the wider community.”

Emma Cree - EYFS Lead Teacher

“Staff are valued, nurtured and invested in. Together with our CEO, I have thrived on the opportunity to develop the role of our lead practitioners and set up networks in collaboration with skilled and supportive staff, passionate about leading successful learning. To date this has included us achieving status as the Local Chartered College Network and CPD activity with a range of experts from Daisy Christodoulou to Professor Rubie-Davies from New Zealand! I love my job and I’m proud to be part of the Oval Learning Trust.”
