A local secondary school in the heart of North East Lincolnshire has been praised for their ongoing commitment to developing educational inclusion, by the prestigious Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM).

Oasis Academy Immingham, an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school, have been described to have successfully created a distinctive culture of ‘tolerance, mutual respect and acceptance, where pupils of all ages have high aspirations and report feeling valued, worthy and safe.’

Assessor from IQM, Julie Lynch states in the report that Oasis Academy Immingham’s students are treated equally: “students are wholeheartedly supported to reach their full potential, irrespective of their academic ability, gender, sexuality, socio-economic status, cultural heritage, language, and or religion.”

The Academy’s ‘REACH’ values have been acknowledged as having a positive impact on staff and students, which have been ingrained in and around the school building, which are ‘Respect, Enthusiasm, Achievement, Community and Hard Work,’ aiding the Academy’s vision to develop student knowledge, in a safe, caring and structured environment, with the intent of gaining qualifications to enable students in the advancement of their careers.

The overwhelmingly positive report commends leadership as ‘truly exceptional’ at all levels within Oasis Academy Immingham, with diversity in the senior leadership team viewed as a ‘significant strength,’ as well as the broad and balanced curriculum, which is said to ‘incorporate opportunities for learners of all ages, levels and abilities, to progress, achieve and succeed.’

Principal of Oasis Academy Immingham, Sara McLoughlin, said: “As an Academy we are always seeking to improve our holistic offer to our students. This application for the Inclusion Quality Mark allowed us to gain valuable feedback from a recognised source of expertise.”

“We were delighted that, after two days of rigorous assessment, which included learning walks of the Academy, meetings with students, parents and community members, we were recommended to become a Centre of Excellence.”

“As there are only 240 in the U.K., this is a great achievement. I am incredibly proud of this report as it reflects the commitment, we have to one another to always demonstrate kindness and acceptance.”
