Oakfield Primary Academy

Transforming lives with exceptional learning - aspiring beyond the expected

11 Before 11

As we are apart of Reach2 Academy Trust, we partake in '11 before 11' which offers 11 promises that every child, who comes to our school, will get to experience by the time they leave Year 6.

All of the promises support character trait development outlined in the DFE document ‘Promoting fundamental British Values’:

  • Neighbourliness and community spirit
  • Tolerance and respect
  • Perseverance, resilience and grit
  • Confidence and optimism
  • Honesty, integrity and dignity
  • Motivation, drive and ambition
  • Conscientiousness, curiosity and focus


The promise themes align within three broader REAch2 contexts – Our Community, Our Adventure, Our Culture

Take a look at what the promises are and which year group they are completed in. 

Further down you will also find some photos of previous promises which have been carried out -  but there are plenty more still to come! 

You can now buy 11 Before 11 merchandise! 20% of every item bought will come back directly to Oakfield, which means we are able to offer more and more exciting opportunities for our children. Check out the website below to order hoodies, t-shirts, badges and more!


Make or Break Reach2 Record! January 2020

As part of the promises for our children to fulfill 11 adventures before they leave aged 11, we have made our very own Reach2 Record! On January 31st 2020, we invited all children and adults to come into school with odd socks and crazy hair! By doing so, we now hold the record for the most number of people wearing odd socks and having crazy hair within Reach2's Academy on one day! It was fantastic seeing all the wild creations children and parents came up with!
