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 Mr Ed McUrich (Y7), Mr Ashley Whiteley (Y8), Miss Sophie Eckersall (Y9), Mr Justin Hyldon (Y10) and Mrs Lisa Stow (Y11).
Our Heads of Year work collaboratively with our Year Managers; Mrs Sorena Bell (Y7), Mrs Kirstie-Rose Gilbert (Y8), Mrs Jo McIntyre (Y9), Mrs Helen Clark (Y10) and Mrs Alli Kent (Y11), 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 Karen Holland (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.
