Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Well-being

At Oasis Academy Boulton, we have high hopes and expectations from all our pupils, staff and parents. We want our small world to have a huge impact on our local, national and global community.

We believe in providing our pupils with the rich experiences that they deserve, the nurture our pastoral care team embeds and the success which they will attain from becoming a holistic learner.

Staying true to our motto: ‘Experiences, Nurture and Success!’

We do not just go by the text books, but by providing them with a curriculum deeply enriched to keep our pupils minds stimulated and engaged in whatever subjects they may be studying.

We are aware that our wonderful learners and community will have many challenges and obstacles to overcome but as they grow and develop we will be there by their side ensuring we make their journey go as smoothly as possible. This is why we have a dedicated pastoral care system in place, ready to support our students and community as much as we can and helping shape their future into a bigger, brighter and better one than they had imagined.

Here are some sites which you can visit for you and your child’s well-being. We hope there is something here for everyone who needs that extra bit of care.

 

 

 

Looking after a child's mental health

There are times when we all feel the strain. As parents and carers, there are ways we can support children and young people to give them the best chance to stay mentally healthy and help them cope with whatever further changes we all may face.

Looking after your mental health

Having good mental health helps us relax more, achieve more and enjoy our lives more. We have expert advice and practical tips to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing.
