Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Vision and Values

At the heart of everything we do is the promotion of a safe, respectful environment, purposeful talk and the development of skills for lifelong learning. 

Our Aims:

  • To create a love of learning
  • To encourage language development and purposeful talk
  • To promote care, respect and empathy
  • To develop lifelong learning skills 
  • To provide high quality learning and teaching so that children achieve their best and progress well
  • To celebrate and develop individual skills and interests
  • To support children to attend school regularly

At Oasis Academy Fir Vale we believe that our children learn best through:

  • Real life and practical experiences
  • Activities and games to practise and apply language and learning
  • A teach, do, review approach
  • Cultivating a growth mindset
  • Developing lifelong learning and social skills (Oasis 9 habits)

We aim for:

  • 'Visible learning' - what teachers are teaching and what children are learning 
  • Teachers and teaching assistants evaluate their effect on learning every day - what is working and not working?
  • Teachers and teaching assistants develop a deep understanding of what children already know and can do and use this to move learning on
  • Teachers and teaching assistants demonstrate the 7 cs: care, control, clarify, challenge, captivate, confer, consolidate
