Say hello to Miss Aasim!

Say hello to Miss Aasim!

It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the new interim Headteacher of Co-op Academy Oakwood.

I have two children Ariana (5) and Jasir (8) and have been a Teacher and Senior Leader in schools for 17 years around Manchester, Trafford and Bradford, my most recent post being Headteacher of a school in West Yorkshire.  

I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to take over the leadership of a school with a good reputation in the community of Gipton. I was certain from my first impressions that Oakwood was the perfect choice for me as Headteacher and since starting my position, I have been tremendously impressed by the whole school, especially the children. Every time I step onto the playground I am welcomed by a sea of inquisitive, smiling faces, eager to learn and proud of their school.

As the leader of the school, my main job is to make sure your child feels welcome, inspired, safe and supported when they are learning. They will achieve well if they are clear about what is expected of them and the steps they need to get there. 

Oakwood is a great school with the potential to be excellent. Our whole school team aim is to help each child become a successful learner and well-rounded individual who is ready to make the next steps in their learning journey.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the numerous parents and carers who have made me feel so welcome. I look forward to working closely with you in the future.
