Oxley Park Primary School became Oxley Park Academy on 1st July 2011. It was one of the first primary schools in Milton Keynes to achieve this status. As an academy Oxley Park is independent from the Local Authority and, although state funded, is directly accountable to the Department for Education.
We made the decision to become an academy in order that we could best meet the needs of our pupils. This was not purely a financial decision but based on the freedoms and autonomies which academy convertors have, to meet their community‚Äôs needs. The rich and varied curriculum we offer is one example of the benefits we have already made by achieving academy status.
