‘Extended school day’ part of Oak View’s Success Story

Oak View Academy is now officially one of the best schools in the country for raising standards in reading, writing and maths, and has made another step in its upwards journey from being ranked the second-worst school in the country three years ago as Greenfields Primary.

The pupil’s progress in reading and writing is ranked in the top five per cent, and top 10 per cent in maths, according to analysis based on Year 6 SATs results.

The dramatic turnaround in fortunes for Oak View Academy in Winsford is now being put down to an earlier start time and an extended school day.

Oak View Academy is now officially one of the best schools in the country for raising standards in reading, writing and maths, and has made another step in its upwards journey from being ranked the second-worst school in the country three years ago as Greenfields.

The pupil’s progress in reading and writing is ranked in the top five per cent, and top 10 per cent in maths, according to analysis based on Year 6 SATs results.

Fiona added: “The school is unrecognisable from what it was and I’m very proud of our children and staff, and the hard work they put in each and every day.

“For us, an extended school day is necessary to ensure we are getting the results in the classroom while delivering our vision of opening children’s eyes to a world of possibility.

“We are not just about results. By approaching learning in this holistic way we see them flourish in confidence and ability in all areas and, ultimately, improve their life chances in the future.”
