Vision and Values
Transforming Learning, Transforming Lives, Transforming Communities
Central to the ethos of Oasis Academy Shirley Park is the idea of a rich and balanced educational environment nurturing the whole student – academically, vocationally, socially, morally, spiritually, emotionally and environmentally. We promote a balanced, healthy lifestyle, demonstrated through policies regarding Academy meals, involvement in sporting activities and ecological building design.
Our goal is to raise aspirations, unlock students’ potential and work towards achieving excellence through encouraging a ‘can do’ culture which nurtures confident and competent people. We believe this can be achieved through high-quality facilities, outstanding staff, clear leadership, a positive, affirming environment, and a partnership between students, parents/carers and the Academy. Parents and carers are positively engaged in supporting their children.
The ethos of Oasis Academy Shirley Park is rooted in Christian-based core values, which permeates every aspect of its life. These include valuing everyone and protecting individual rights to freedom and choice, working actively against discrimination and social exclusion, and respecting the beliefs and practices of others. The Academy provides a welcoming environment for students of all faiths and no faith and serves the whole community.
