Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Volunteering

Here at Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey we have many opportunities in which you can get involved in volunteering and share your skills, talents and time to help make a positive contribution to the life of the Academy and the students themselves.

There are so many benefits to volunteering in which your skills and talents can be developed and sharpened and it can help move you forward in vocation areas that are key to you as well as making a difference to the students.

At Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey we know that every single one of our students can also make a difference. We know each one of them has a talent or range of talents that can be nurtured and developed to enrich their own and others’ lives. Some of our students do not even realise they have a special gift or talent and as educators, it is our duty ensure that students are encouraged to excel at their studies, take part in enrichment and contribute to Academy life so that they can flourish and mature into responsible, confident and caring citizens.

We have a strong ethos of inclusion and believe in working in partnership with parents, local community groups and support agencies to provide first-class education, the highest level of care and the widest possible choice of life experiences for our students.

We believe that everyone in the community has a role to play in making Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey the best possible educational environment for our students. It doesn’t matter how much or little time you have available, or whether you are a parent or not. If you live in or around either our East or West site and want to make a real difference in your community, we would welcome your help.

The sort of volunteer opportunities available within our Academy are listed below, but you may have a particular skill or service that you feel would benefit our students and we would be delighted to hear from you if that is the case.

It’s a great feeling to know you are making a difference to an individual student as you see the progress they make. It is very rewarding helping them on their journey, and it gives me a great deal of satisfaction

I have learnt so much more about how to interact with people, about who I am, what I believe, what I want to be
