Ladygrove Park converted on 1st June 2013 to an academy as a founder member of the Oxfordshire Primary Education Network (OPEN).
OPEN has the aim of working together to provide an outstanding education for all our children. OPEN exists to provide support and challenge across the network.
Other member schools are Willowcroft, Cholsey and St John's Primary Schools.
The benefits of being an academy are:
- A continued commitment to raising pupil achievement at Ladygrove Park Primary School through the sharing of best practice teaching and of high quality professional development across all schools in the Umbrella Trust.
- The potential to set our own curriculum to meet the Trust’s objective of “an outstanding education for all pupils“.
- Some additional funding so we can deploy resources in the best way towards achieving our aims.
The umbrella trust will provide challenge and support for Ladygrove Park as well as replacing some of the functions of the Local Authority. The four schools keep their own independence but will also commit to working together to improve teaching and learning in all schools.
