Now there are no excuses - principal

Daily Echo: Now there are no excuses - principal Now there are no excuses - principal

Oasis Academy head Ian Golding said the new £16 million facility provided an important tool in the its aim to lift aspirations in the area.

He said: “The building is telling teachers and children and parents there’s no excuses now.

“Students’ uniform has instantly risen, and those who aren’t doing the right thing are increasingly like dinosaurs. People are saying we’ve moved on, we want to be a different person and a different school.

“What I love about it is there’s only one way in, and that’s through that agora.

The very fabric of the building says you’re special, you’re unique and you’re worth investing in.

“This is for you and that’s what we tell students all the time.

“We tell our children don’t whinge about how hard your life is, you’ve got to come here and work your socks off and we’ll back you 100 per cent.

“We’ve got teachers who care and will go the extra mile, but they’ve got to care and somehow find something inside.”

More to the point another privately run academic organisation set up to fail local pupils and falsify it's statistics by selling off it's less academic students, instead of giving them the support they require. Same applies to the Mayfield site.

Here is a novel idea....how about people get behind academies rather than continually moaning! Its quite clear that legislation surrounding academies will not be changing in the near future so all of the negativity isn't going to help anyone!

With regards to "selling off less academic students" where on earth could you get an idea like that? Are you aware of the deprivation in the catchment area of the academy, oh that's right its one of the highest free school meal percentages in the country, if the "less academic" students were removed the academy would only have 64% of its current student roll.

The school is 100 pupils per cohort down on its planned numbers.
.
The year 7 intake next September will be higher, but not through choice but because the other schools will be full.
.
What Oasis do not realise is that hiding their results from their website makes parents suspect the worst.
