The Oasis Education Charter
The Oasis Education Charter is who we are, how we are distinctive and the entitlement we provide for our children and their communities.
The Oasis Education Charter was written by Oasis Leaders to express the aspirations of the entitlement that we want to provide for all of our young people.
The Charter builds on the founding ethos of our organisation, and naturally references a number of existing documents, including the Oasis Hub Framework, Oasis Ends Statement, One Oasis Statement, it is informed by our Philosophy of Education.
Our Ethos is rooted in what we believe and who we are.

- We have a desire to treat everyone equally, respecting all differences
- We have a commitment to healthy and open relationships
- We have a deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed

Our vision is driven through a passion and commitment to include everyone.

- We model and set high aspirations and expectations for every child and young person and member of staff

The purpose of education is to understand what it means to be human - living intentionally and asking two key questions: Who am I? Who am I becoming?
The Foundation of our students' learning is made up of five integrated objectives:

The curriculum is the heart of Oasis's educational provision.
