At our Academy our mission is simple, to provide all children with an exceptional education which is at the heart of our community. Within the Academy, we celebrate diversity and relentlessly focus on the attainment of all of our children.
We achieve this by having high expectations of behaviour, through focused routines, an unwavering focus on outcomes and by offering the very best teaching and support. At Oasis Academy Don Valley children learn, behave and are well mannered.
Our Academy is values driven and from the moment children join our academy family we expect them to live our values. In our academic culture children are focused on working hard and endeavour to do well, striving to be the very best version of themselves.
The Academy has gone from strength to strength since opening in September 2015 and we believe we are developing a strong reputation across our community. We are especially proud that this year we were the first choice Academy for 97% of our families.
The relationships we have with our parents and wider community are extremely important to us because it is only by working together that our children can achieve their social, emotional and academic potential. We understand that as a parent nothing is more important to you than ensuring that your children have the best chance in life. That is why keeping your children safe and challenging them to rise to our high expectations is our main priority. We all want to be proud of our children’s achievements.
Our Academy mission is to: provide an exceptional education at the heart of the community, which prepares our children to have a positive impact on the world

As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive.
