Love. Laugh. Learn
We believe that love is the fundamental need of every person. We care deeply about our children and show this through the time and commitment we give to them. We want our children to care for others, and for the world they live in.
We believe that children learn best when they are enjoying the lessons and that laughter and fun are essential in order to engage children with their learning.
We recognise that every child is unique and value this diversity. We give all our children the opportunity to learn as many things, in as many ways as possible so that each child is able to shine.
We believe that we will support the success of all of our children through building:
- A community which celebrates diversity and difference
- A curriculum that is engaging, relevant and challenging
- A staff team who are dedicated to supporting the children to be the very best that they can be
- A focussed learning environment with high aspirations based on a sense of purpose, engagement, fun and challenge As a community school it is important to us that we serve the needs and interests of our community.
We work hard to build partnerships with parents so that together we can provide the very best for our children. At Oasis Academy Longmeadow we extend a very warm welcome to you. We encourage you to get involved with your child’s learning and academy life through our Parent Forum meetings and FOALS (Friends of Oasis Academy Longmeadow). We believe that by transforming learning we can transform lives. Together we can ensure that the children flourish.
They have raised expectations of all in the school community and are improving the quality of teaching.
We want our children to be active and learning throughout the day and have invested in supporting this at playtimes and lunchtimes. Our spacious grounds are home to a large field which includes a football pitch and running track. We have a range of climbing equipment including a scramble-net and trim-trail. We also have a Playpod, which contains a wide range of equipment to support creative and collaborative play. The playground has a sheltered quiet area and flower gardens, with seating for times when children want to chat or play more quietly with their friends.
Our Reception children have their own outdoor area which they use at playtimes until the summer term. This includes a story-telling area, mud kitchen, water play, a garden and a “road” for bike and scooter riding. Our academy is bright, engaging and vibrant. We are proud of the work our children produce and enjoy celebrating their talents in a variety of ways, for example through displays and assemblies.
Every Friday we hold a celebration assembly to celebrate children’s academic achievements and behaviour. Good attendance is also celebrated weekly and termly. At the start of each year we hold an informal ‘Meet the Teacher’ session which gives parents chance to find out about their child’s new class. After that, parents’ evenings are held twice a year to discuss progress. You will be able to meet with teachers and the Principal to discuss your child’s report at the end of the year. If you have any comments, concerns or suggestions, we encourage you to make an appointment at any time during the year to discuss anything connected with your child’s education or wellbeing.
Leaders know their school well. They have worked with diligence and tenacity to move the school forward and make rapid improvements.
Oasis Horizons is a scheme being introduced into every Oasis academy throughout the academic year 2020-2021, where each current and future pupil, and their teachers and support staff, will be provided with an iPad to give them access to enhanced online learning. Students and teachers will be able to use the device together in lessons to bring subjects to life and participate in shared learning. Students will even be able to continue this at home!
