Oasis Philosophy of Education
Three important ancient Hebrew words underpin Oasis’ whole life learning and philosophy of education:
Healthy Communities (peace; completeness; nothing missing; nothing broken; wellbeing; wholeness). Seeks to ensure that every classroom encounter, each piece of curriculum planning, each assessment experience are all shaped, informed and delivered in the light of our desire for wholeness and well-being in the widest sense of the word; for everyone at every level of their lives – academically, vocationally, physically, spiritually, morally, socially, economically, environmentally and culturally
Deep Learning (to know; to see; to perceive; to understand; to experience; to have a relationship with). Gives students the opportunity to encounter and experience learning personally and relationally. It is never an abstract, theoretical or academic idea simply to be contemplated but, rather, primarily about gaining wisdom – the practical application of knowledge to every area of life. Life is not straightforward; learning from failure and mistakes and being resilient is an important part of it. It is hands-on learning throughout life which can only be obtained through on-going active, intentional engagement with it and with others.
Inspirational Leadership (my teacher; my guide; my role model; a term of respect)
Through personal example and strong relationships, all teachers are encouraged to be inspirational role models for their students. In this way, a teacher is not simply a purveyor of ‘knowledge’, dropping it into the minds of those they teach. Instead, they are communicating and bringing knowledge, wisdom and understanding through their words, actions and whole lives, helping students to reflect and think for themselves.
Underpinned by our values and beliefs, all our work is designed to ensure each student receives the very best educational offer. Oasis operates as a national family of Academies, split into four regions. The regional teams provide standards, leadership and a professional governance service. The Oasis family of Academies is led by empowered - and empowering – resilient leaders who, through their deeply held beliefs and values, always strive to make decisions in the best interests of the students and their communities.
Each Oasis Academy has its own identity and purpose and serves its local community by working with it to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities. As a family, Oasis Academies work interdependently, benefitting from sharing best practice and inspirational pedagogy. Leaders and teachers build understanding of what is needed to secure the best possible sustainable outcomes for all learners.
