Equality and inclusion are at the heart of Oasis. We have a passion to include everyone and a deep desire to treat everyone equally - staff, students and community members alike. We accept others for who they are and respect differences.
Our aim is to provide an exceptional education at the heart of the community. This means we want to continually develop our staff and students' learning in a holistic manner. We work hard to improve students’ attainment and the standards of teaching and learning continually on an academic level, and at the same time, aim to meet the needs of the whole person and the whole community. Every person matters. Equality is therefore in the heart of our academies, hubs and offices nationwide.
Staff Networks & Champions
We have a number of EDI staff networks within OCL, which are open to all staff from across all regions. You can find out more about these networks by visiting our Staff Network page.
Within each academy there is one appointed EDI champion who are advocates for equality within their own setting, joining together as a group of committed and passionate staff across the family of academies to share best practice, generate new ideas and initiatives and improve the culture here at OCL.
Equality & Inclusion Recognition
We are delighted to share that our academies are being recognised at a national and local level for their commitment to equality, and are the recipients of many titles and awards.
Here is a snapshot of some of those commendations.
