Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Vision and Values

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds - Promising Futures

We believe that at Oasis Academy Blakenhale every single child matters and is valued.  We offer equality of opportunity whilst also taking into account individuality.  We aim to encourage and support children to enjoy school and to develop the skill of independent learning as part of fostering a culture of life-long growth.  We strive to provide an environment in which children are safe, able to achieve and can therefore achieve their potential.  We actively encourage parents, the extended family and community members to work with the academy to support their children.

Value Propositions for every child:

  • To feel safe, happy, included and confident
  • To have access to different learning experiences
  • To receive consistently good and outstanding teaching and learning tailored to their individual needs
  • To help facilitate children to be supported by their families, carers and local community
  • To communicate with individuals and groups from different cultures on a local, national and international level
  • To have contact with adults and organisations who can inspire and raise the aspiration of our children

Oasis Academy Blakenhale is driven by a powerful ethos which aspires to treat everyone inclusively and recognises the importance of a holistic approach to education.  As well as continuing to build a strong school and deliver a first-class education, it is also our desire to build an interconnected community, recognising that educational needs do not exist in isolation from the needs of the whole person. 

At Oasis Academy Blakenhale we live aim to:

  • Create a happy, stimulating, caring learning environment where risk taking and challenge is encouraged
  • Awaken and nurture a love of learning that will last a lifetime and provide everyone with the skills to pursue that learning, both independently and collaboratively
  • Enable everyone to reach the highest standard of which they are capable, academically and in other fields such as sport, arts and culture
  • Encourage all learners to develop their own interests, passions, enthusiasms, creativity and individuality
  • Help learners to understand and care about the world in which they live and to believe in their ability and responsibility to change that world to make it better
  • Empower learners to develop a strong sense of right and wrong, good and bad, equality and justice. Give them the inner strength to act according to these values
  • Provide learners with the skills and understanding to live a healthy, successful life, physically, emotionally and spiritually
  • Foster respect, tolerance and love for others, regardless of race, gender, religion or difference, within a framework of equality of opportunity and fairness
  • Help learners to appreciate human achievements and aspirations and to believe in their own potential to attain great things
  • Promote a feeling of pride and confidence in learners’ identities; as individuals, as members of our academy, as part of the local community and as citizens of the world

  • Learning, achievement, personal fulfilment and good citizenship are at the heart of all that we do
