Welcome Message from Mr P Shackleton (Acting Headteacher)
I am exceptionally proud to be the new acting Headteacher of Oldbury Academy. Many of you know me already as I have worked at our school for over five years and feel extremely privileged to be able to lead a team of outstanding staff whose aim is to inspire students to achieve academic excellence and grow into well-qualified individuals, confident to take their place in society, with the skills and self-esteem to make a success of their lives.
I’m really excited and look forward to working with all of our students, staff, parents, governors and the wider community to ensure that our school meets the challenges we face head on. I have an intense and uncompromising drive to ensure our school continues to develop and improve.
I have high expectations of myself, my team and our students as we strive for excellence and I expect the highest standards and achievements from our students, in their behaviour, their effort and their attitude. Traditional values like respect, discipline, and hard work support my vision to ensure we continue to be a creative, dynamic and exciting school where students value learning.
Key to my philosophy is to champion and celebrate progress in all aspects of students’ lives. They should be recognised as individuals; yet I expect us to work together as a strong family, to continue to develop all aspects of our Academy. I want students to have a real voice here, who actively contribute to the running of the Academy. I want them to develop into fantastic role models who are able to achieve and fulfil all of their dreams and aspirations.
All staff and governors are committed to providing the very best education for our students. Our first challenge is to respond to the findings of our most recent OFSTED inspection in late September. I relish this challenge and look forward to leading the school over the coming months and years as we successfully move forward.
Mr Philip Shackleton
