Pastoral Care

Oasis Academy Wintringham is committed to providing the highest level of pastoral care, welfare and age-appropriate guidance for all students. The primary aim is to offer a stable environment with a sense of security and belonging from which they can:

  • Develop their social, intellectual, physical and practical skills.
  • Participate in community life.
  • Become aware of the needs and feelings of other people.
  • Be prepared for their life after school.

Our Heads of Year are currently Miss Sophie Eckersall (Y07), Mr Justin Hyldon (Y08), Miss Kirsty Smith (Y09), Mr Ed McUrich (Year10) and Mr Ashley Whiteley (Year 11).

Our Heads of Year work collaboratively with our Year Managers; Mrs Joanne McIntyre (Year 7), Miss Courtney Brambles (Year 8), Mrs Alli Kent (Year 9), Mr Wayne Watson (Year 10) and Miss Kirstie-Rose Gilbert (Year 11), to ensure all students feel safe, secure and happy whilst in and out of the Academy. These members of staff are the primary contact point for parents/carers.

To support a smooth transition from KS2 into KS3, we also have Mrs Dawn Castle (Transition Mentor), who works closely with our Year 7 staff team, liaises with and visits all local primary schools/Academies to ensure that all students feel safe, confident and excited about joining OAW.

The pastoral system reflects the overall ethos of the Academy which encourages students to care for themselves, work hard and consider each other, their community and the environment in which they live. Within a Year Group tutor setting, students participate in an age appropriate programme, which incorporates SMSC & CEIAG activities and weekly themed assemblies.
