About us

We’re here to support great teaching. We’re an independent public body. We work in partnership to improve pupil outcomes and close the disadvantage gap by supporting teachers to teach, and enabling pupils to access a high-quality curriculum.

Flexible working at Oak National Academy

At Oak we truly value flexibility. We offer a 4.5 day week or 9 day fortnight as standard. Colleagues are supported to work from home (equipment allowance provided) but can also choose to spend some of their time at a 'flexi-desk' at a location of their choosing.

We always try to be considerate of teammates who are juggling parenting duties, especially when it comes to school runs. We have a culture that ensures regular meetings do not happen at awkward times so that colleagues can manage drop-offs and pickups smoothly.

But don't just hear it from us, please look at some quotes from Oak colleagues...

"Oak has a great working culture that is flexible, promotes employee wellbeing and work life balance. They give their employees autonomy over their work and provide challenge in all the right places. They continually promote learning and development and provide opportunities to become experts in our work."

"We are encouraged to work flexibly and maintain a work-life balance. The senior team lead by example and we keep meetings to a minimum to allow for time in the day when work can be completed at a time/place that suits individuals best."

Approach to diversity & inclusion

At Oak, we believe that our unique differences are what make us exceptional. We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive and diverse community within our organisation, and we've made significant strides in this journey over recent months.

We're committed to creating an environment where we not only embrace but also celebrate different ideas and perspectives. We understand that by valuing and encouraging these diverse viewpoints, we enable everyone to not only be a part of our culture but to enrich it in their own unique ways.
