Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Vision and Values

Academy Ethos & Holistic Education

At Oasis Academy Lister Park, our strong ethos of inclusion and pastoral care reinforces our commitment to looking after and developing the ‘whole’ child. Our curriculum supports the development of skills, knowledge and character. We expect our students to participate in the many enrichment opportunities provided to enrich their own and the lives of others, and be professional by committing to a life of learning, taking pride in their appearance, being present, punctual, prepared, and taking advantage of leadership and enterprise opportunities. We celebrate individual talents and abilities, developing confident, independent students who enjoy life-long learning.

Our Values

Every child matters 

We identify and develop the gifts, talents and interests of all our students. Our curriculum and extended opportunities enable all students to engage in their education. They enjoy learning and achieve success. We help them learn how to be healthy and stay safe. They make positive contributions to their Academy, their community and the wider world. They develop spiritual, social, physical, emotional and economic well-being. The achievements of all our students are valued. 

Education for all 

All members of our community are learners. Our students are educated for life. Our staff are developed through teamwork, training and the opportunities that an innovative environment brings. The educational facilities are shared with local schools and local people. We provide lifelong learning. 

Community Partnerships

It takes a whole village to raise a child

This African saying reflects the importance of the whole community in educating our children. We employ first-class staff and support goes far beyond the classroom, into the local community. Parents, carers and families of our students are expected to be involved in the partnership that is the education of the whole child.

Love your neighbour 

We recognise the richness that spiritual and cultural diversity brings to our community. We respect the beliefs and practices of other faiths and provide a welcoming environment for students of all faiths and those with none. We recognise that we are stronger together and value collaboration. We develop an understanding and tolerance of each other through knowledge, mutual respect, believing the best of each other and forgiveness. Individual rights are respected and choice is exercised within a culture of self-discipline.
