I am delighted to introduce myself as the Principal of Oasis Academy, Isle of Sheppey. Our Academy is based on the foundations of the Oasis Community Learning ethos whereby all our pupils are treated as unique individuals. We provide strong pastoral care so that everyone receives the personal support required to reach their potential in a safe and stimulating environment. You can discover more about Oasis and our vision to deliver exceptional education at the heart of our community by clicking onto the website.
I am supported by a dedicated team of leaders, teachers and support staff, and collectively we have high aspirations for all our pupils. Our leaders' work is focused on ensuring teaching is delivered to a high standard on a daily basis. My colleagues on the Academy Leadership Team can be found under the Who's Who section of our website with details of the areas of their responsibility and contact details should you wish to discuss any areas of your child(ren)'s education.
As a rapidly improving school, we recognise the continuous work necessary to increase pupils' academic progress and attendance, as we strive to meet and exceed national standards. Thus, our expectations around pupils' conduct and work ethics are high. Our school community is based on the 3Ps which we call The Isle of Sheppey Way, which are:
The Isle of Sheppey Way are the three aspects of Behaviour for Learning that we not only expect from students, but actively teach, develop and model as members of staff. It is through this structured environment that our students make good progress in their learning.
Central to our work is the belief that, alongside rapid academic progress, an outstanding education provides young people with a range of platforms to develop their skills and talents. Whether it be playing sport as part of our wide range of extra-curricular clubs, taking part in one of our vibrant school performances, or contributing to the wider community through one of our extensive outreach projects, your child will find many opportunities to enrich his or her education.
We fully encourage the support of our parents and carers in their child's education and host regular workshops and events to support our families with their child's learning. We appreciate your support to ensure homework is completed and your child attends every day. We are here to help if you would like support.
Your feedback is important to us and we encourage you to complete the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire to help us continue improving and to strive for Outstanding.
Oasis Academy, Isle of Sheppey, is on an exciting journey and we look forward to working with you to ensure your children achieve the success they deserve.
Current leaders’ actions are rapidly improving behaviour, attendance, teaching and assessment...pupils are making more progress as a result.
