Oasis Academy Wintringham is committed to providing the highest level of pastoral care, welfare and 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.
Each student is part of a House: Branson, Newton, Ennis-Hill or Rowling and within this a part of a vertical tutor group. We believe that creating a strong sense of community belonging and fostering healthy competition ensures students feel happy and secure.
Our Heads of House, Justin Hyldon (Branson), Ashley Whiteley (Newton), Ed McUrich (Ennis-Hill), Briday Peers (Rowling) regulary organise inter-community competitions and events, as well as participating in our weekly community assemblies. Each House is also headed by one of our Assistant Principals.
Working alongside them are our House Managers: Mrs McIntyre (Branson), Mr Watson (Newton), Mrs Kent (Ennis-Hill) and Mrs Carlberg/Mr Leadbetter (Rowling). These members of staff deal with any behaviour issues or pastoral needs students may have and are the primary form of contact for parents/carers in relation to pastoral issues.
The pastoral system reflects the overall ethos of the Academy which encourages students to care for themselves, work hard and consider each other, the community and the environment in which they live.
