Academisation Consultation

Welcome to the Oakfield Schools Federation’s academy consultation webpage. This page has been set up to provide important information regarding the proposal for both Oakfield Infant and Junior Schools to become academies and join Smart Multi Academy Trust.

Our primary focus at this time is to ensure that all stakeholders understand our proposals and have ample opportunities to seek clarification and provide feedback.

The stakeholder consultation period is now live and will run from 12 February to 10 March 2024 inclusive and will involve parents, carers, staff, pupils, and the wider community in discussions regarding the proposal for Oakfield Infant and Junior Schools to convert to academy status and join Smart Multi Academy Trust.

Our consultation events were incredibly well attended on 28th February 2024 and we would now like to invite all stakeholders to complete the survey below to give you the opportunity to provide us with feedback and to ask any additional questions you may have.


You can also request a paper copy of the survey by contacting the school office, or ask any questions or provide feedback by emailing [email protected]

Below you can download a copy of the letter which has been distributed to our stakeholders, the consultation report, along with a copy of Frequently Asked Questions and a copy of the presentation which was given at the information sessions, which you may find helpful. Additional details will be added to this page as they become available.
