"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
John Quincy Adams
At Oasis Academy Immingham, we believe that students must have the opportunity to actively participate in academy life by taking up roles and responsibilities, throughout the academic year, in order to contribute to both whole school improvement and to take ownership of their own future. This is key to a deeper student engagement and enables our students to participate in the sort of leadership opportunities which prepare them for life in modern democratic Britain and a global society. A society where we value equal opportunities and one in which a variety of beliefs and opinions are heard.
Student leadership at Oasis Immingham ensures students take active roles in their education and develop positive skills in the process. The goal of inspiring student leaders is to create a culture of ownership, collaboration and community both in the classroom and into the wider society. Through a variety of student led focus groups, students pro-actively embrace the opportunity to build resilience and develop their own character within an inclusive environment. Oasis Immingham’s student role models promote a culture of positive behaviour school wide. The end goal is inspiring confident individuals ready to take on challenges, using real-world skills, that will enable them to flourish in our society.
Giving students ownership of their education and true responsibility helps build accountable, confident individuals. It also provides them with marketable skills that they can apply to future endeavours. Student leadership opportunities to take on leadership roles include being a member of the Student Leadership Team and the Year 11 Prefect team. Being part of these teams helps students develop skills they might not have otherwise had the opportunity to grow.
Oasis Academy Immingham has a Student Leadership Team consisting of elected representatives from every year group. These student leaders are led by the Chair and Deputy Chair from Year 11. We are very proud of them for the qualities that they bring to this position: responsibility, reliability, positivity, maturity, team-skills and a commitment to improving the life of the Academy.
The Student Leadership Team leads on a number of projects that benefit our Academy and wider community ranging from charity events to assisting with the transition of Year 6 students. They meet regularly to feedback student opinion to senior leaders, as well as exemplifying the highest standards to their peers through their appearance, attitude to learning and behaviour.
Our student leaders play a huge part in the running of the Academy and take their roles extremely seriously. They help to run many of our events, such as acting as ambassadors for the school at parents’ evenings, transition days, and when we have important visitors.
An important part of their role is communicating their work to students, staff and parents. This they do through assemblies, reporting at leadership team meetings, via the Student Leadership Team noticeboard, newsletters and on the Academy’s website.
