Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Council

What does the Council do?

  • It acts as a key link between the Academy, parents and the local community.
  • It champions the work of the Academy in the local community.
  • It acts as a sounding board for the Principal and Academy Leadership Team as they plan the future development of the Academy and represents the views of different parts of the school community to influence decision making. 
  • It keeps an eye on how the plans are implemented, ensuring that the Oasis Ethos remains at the heart of the Academy community.
  • It continually reviews the overall impact of the Academy among the people it exists to serve and makes suggestions for improvement.
  • It helps on the ground with the implementation of certain Academy policies (e.g. Student Admissions and Behaviour).
  • It offers challenging but positive and proactive support to the Principal.
