Information about this school

Oasis Academy Immingham is sponsored by Oasis Community Learning Trust. The school’s ethos is based on Christian values and accepts pupils of all faiths and none. It is a smaller than average secondary school with a small sixth form. The school serves the local community of the town and the vast majority of pupils come from four nearby primary schools. The school is open for boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 16, and offers further education in its sixth form to age 18. Including the sixth form, there are 717 pupils on roll. The school meets the floor standard for secondary schools, the minimum standard of performance set by the government for secondary schools nationally. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The vast majority of pupils come from White British backgrounds. A small number of pupils attend local alternative provisions. These are Phoenix Park Academy and Seven Hills Academy.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Oasis Community Learning Trust, governors and the principal share a common, high level of ambition for pupils to thrive in the school. The principal and senior leaders model their focus on the needs of pupils well. As a result, staff are motivated and have the achievement and personal development of pupils at heart. Middle leaders play an increasingly central role in checking that teaching is effective and arrange additional support when pupils are at risk of underachieving. Pupils behave well during lessons and around the school. They show respect for their environment, each other and adults. Pupils develop self-confidence as learners as they progress through the school. They enjoy their learning. They attend well and fewer than average are persistently absent. Pupils say they feel safe and cared for well. They are confident that staff will help them if they have a problem. Pupils make increasingly good progress from their starting points, and attainment is much stronger than it was at the time of the previous inspection. Good teaching and the carefully planned curriculum enable pupils to acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding they need across a range of subjects. Pupils are well prepared for their next steps in education and training and for life in modern Britain. Safeguarding arrangements are effective. The trust ensures that all the required checks are carried out and recorded properly. Staff are carefully trained and are able to recognise the signs of abuse or neglect and know what to do when this happens. Pupils have good opportunities to learn about risks and how to keep themselves safe. The sixth form is led well. Provision is good and learners are prepared well for their next steps in education, training or employment. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Middle leaders are not wholly effective in ensuring that teachers plan learning that challenges pupils of all abilities consistently, especially the most able. Teachers make inconsistent use of progress information about pupils to plan learning and adjust lessons that accelerate progress precisely.
