Since their last report, in the last five years Ofsted have praised Oasis Academy Immingham within the report saying; “The support provided for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is effective. These pupils study the same curriculum as everyone else. Leaders provide teachers with up-to-date information on the needs of individual pupils. In mainstream lessons, teachers use this information to make the adjustments that pupils need.”

Taking a look at the curriculum within the academy, Ofsted continue to say; “Leaders have a clear vision for the curriculum. They ensure the curriculum caters for pupils’ academic and personal development. Pupils receive teaching in a broad range of subjects in key stage 3. Curriculum planned in each subject includes all the knowledge set out in the national curriculum.”

Sara McLoughlin, Principal at Oasis Academy Immingham, commented on the glowing report saying; “I am exceptionally proud of this report and would like to thank the students, staff, parents and members of the community who over the years have supported us on our continued journey to provide amazing education to the young people in our care.”

“We are particularly pleased that inspectors praised the opportunities we provide and support we offer through the rich and broad curriculum.”

Looking at safeguarding measures in the academy, Ofsted said “Keeping pupils safe is the top priority in this school. The school has a culture of vigilance. Leaders ensure that all staff are well trained. As a result, they understand a wide range of potential risks, including county lines, domestic violence and peer on peer abuse.”
