Enrichment

Here at Oasis Academy Immingham, we are committed to ensuring that the highest quality academic curriculum is offered, underpinned by a varied and competitive enrichment programme.

Throughout each year, we try to encourage all pupils to take part in an extensive extra-curricular programme. Whether that is joining a club, becoming part of a team or getting involved with school trips and special visits.

Our aim is to allow our pupils to develop other facets of their personality and to discover more about their strengths and talents. We therefore put together an extensive enrichment programme covering the arts, sports, STEM and more.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award helps young people develop into well rounded and responsible individuals, and according to a recent survey it is regarded by many of the major employers in the United Kingdom as the most important activity that takes place in schools.

At Oasis Academy Immingham we encourage students to participle, and currently run the Bronze award from Year 9 upwards.

 

The Award consists of 4 units over at total of 6 months:

To successfully achieve their Bronze Award, students need to complete the 4 sections over the agreed timeframe.

In regards to the Voluntary, Physical and Skills sections, students select an appropriate activity that they will complete on a weekly basis. The Duke of Edinburgh participant will then log evidence for these sections on their eDofE account. The evidence of participation will then be checked and approved by a D of E assessor from the Academy.

  • Volunteering- pupils offer service to individuals or the community. This can range from teaching primary pupils to read, visiting the elderly, clearing footpaths to recycling within the School.
  • Skill - this essentially means a hobby. It encourages discovery and development of practical and social skills and personal interests.
  • Physical Recreation - Encourages participation/improvement in physical activity.
  • Expedition - this encourages a spirit of adventure and discovery. At all levels of the award, appropriate training is given and practice expeditions take place.

To ensure that students are correctly prepared for the 2 day assessed expedition, students have to attend regular training at the Academy (see useful information section for the timetable) and a practice expedition.
