About the Academy Oasis Academy Limeside offers a high quality before and after school club, ‘Bright Smiles’, which opens from 8:00am until 8:50am and from 3:15pm to 6:00pm. People wishing to use this service must register with the club. If you would like to view the Academy or talk to any members of staff, visits or appointments may be arranged by telephone, letter or email. Parents/carers’ Evenings are held twice a year to discuss progress and pastoral issues. Full reports are issued at the end of each academic year. Additionally, interim progress reports are issued in the Autumn and Spring terms for children in Year 2 onwards. Oasis Academy Limeside is situated on Limeside Estate in the Hollinwood area of Oldham. The original school was built in 1931 and is housed in a two storey, traditional red brick building. The Academy has been adapted to accommodate disabled pupils. There are toilet/changing facilities on both floors, a lift, a disabled entrance and ramp facilities. The Academy is co-educational and takes children from the normal primary school age range of 4 years to 11 years. In addition, our nursery offers part time provision with the option for parents/carers to buy extra hours. Nursery and reception classes share a Foundation Stage Unit.
Every Friday we hold a whole Academy assembly to celebrate the week’s achievements. Parents/carers and friends of the Academy are welcome to attend. We also hold an annual presentation evening in July to celebrate achievements and excellence during the year. The Academy is a National Support School and the Principal is a National Leader of Education and lead Principal for Oasis. As such it offers support and guidance to other schools. It has an excellent reputation and has contributed to national conferences presenting case studies on its innovative learning practices and has been included in publications and research materials. The children enjoy a wide range of learning experiences both in and out of the building. It offers a wide range of after school activities such as sports and choir clubs. It plays a full role in the local community.
Ofsted Inspection The Academy was last inspected in November 2007 and judged outstanding in all areas. Ofsted reported that “Happiness and delight sum up the children’s love of learning and care for each other.” The 2011 interim assessment by HMI reported that the Academy has maintained its standards.
Admissions Statement Children are allocated places in accordance with the Local Authority’s Admissions Policy. This means that priority is given to children with Special Educational Needs or children who are looked after by the Local Authority. The next priority is children who have brothers and sisters at the Academy, followed by proximity of the child’s home address to the Academy. Entry to the nursery is managed by the Academy. Entry to reception and admission to other year groups is centrally organised by the Local Authority. There are two Foundation Stage classes, two Key Stage 1 classes and four Key Stage 2 classes. The Academy’s existing admissions limit is 30 pupils. Parents/carers are informed of the class organisation in the Summer Term when staffing levels and pupil numbers are known.
Our Vision Imagine a stimulating place ringing with the sound of childrenâ€™s laughter. See confident, reflective and playful learners, filled with their own sense of purpose and self-belief. Watch as they enjoy the challenge of new experiences, pose questions and solve problems. Listen in, as they discuss the skills they are using and plan what they need to do next. Admire the high levels of academic, sporting and artistic achievement, as everyone strives to be the best that they can. Notice how the needs, interests and talents of all, are valued and supported. Join us in celebrating success at every level, as all learners discover and develop their own passions, potential and individuality. Prepare to take some risks as you take part in the creative breadth of exciting curriculum experiences. Hear the buzz of enthusiastic talk, generated by people of all ages learning from each other. See how learning extends beyond the Academy gates to embrace the outdoors and wider community. Acknowledge, in particular, how learners draw appropriately on ICT to enhance their achievements.
This is Oasis Academy Limeside, a place where everyone SHINEs with possibility. Enjoy the security and the harmony of a group of people who nurture and care for each other. Sense their respect for people from different backgrounds and cultures, for society and for the natural world. Notice the exemplary behaviour, as learners assume responsibility for making choices and consider how their actions affect others. Watch as they are empowered to rise to any challenges in the future. Sense everyoneâ€™s pride in themselves, each other and their Academy.

Key Stage 2 - 23 hours and 30 minutes Key Stage 1 - 22 hours and 30 minutes
Registration and Late Arrival Please ensure that your child arrives at the Academy promptly. The first part of the day is very important as the teacher often explains the dayâ€™s learning at this time. Registration takes place at 9:00am and 1:00pm. Any child arriving after these times will be marked as late. Please escort your child to the Academy if you are running late for any reason and inform the office staff of their arrival. It is better to come late than not to come at all. Any arrival after 10:10am or 2:20pm will be recorded as an unauthorised absence unless a satisfactory reason is forthcoming.
Illness During the Academy Day If a child becomes ill during the Academy day, whenever possible they will be sent home. Please ensure that we have up to date contact details for such circumstances. The decision to send a child home will be taken by a member of the Senior Leadership Team and based on advice from trained First Aiders. Children leaving the Academy other than at official times must be signed out at the main office. Should a child be injured at the Academy and need hospital attention, they will be taken to hospital by car or an ambulance will be called, whichever is considered appropriate. The Academy will contact the childâ€™s parents/carers immediately. Should it be necessary the Principal, Deputy or any other member of the teaching staff will act in loco parentis.
Serious accidents will be recorded in the Official Accident Book. Parents/carers will be informed of any less serious injuries or incidents during the Academy day when they collect their child or by phone.
Holidays in Term Time The law states that parents/carers do not have the right to take their child out of the Academy for holidays during term time. In exceptional circumstances however the Principal can authorise a period of leave of up to ten days in any academic year. On considering any request the Principal will take attendance figures into account and may only authorise one holiday during the time the child is at the Academy. Any extra days will be recorded as unauthorised absences. Should parents/carers wish to take their children on holiday they must fill out a Holiday in Term Time Application form, which must be completed and signed by the Principal. Permission will not be granted for holidays during formal SATs periods.
Out of school care service Bright Smiles The Academy operates a service whereby children are looked after from 8:00am until 8:50am and from 3:15pm until 6:00pm in the afternoon. Children need to be registered to use this facility. Parents/carers who are interested in this service can obtain further details including the full terms and conditions of the service from the Care Club Manager, through the Academy.
Contact with Parents/Carers Children achieve more when both home and the Academy work together. To this end, the Academy aims to work in close partnership with Parents/Carers. You are welcome to raise any questions or concerns that arise with staff. Teaching staff can be consulted at the end of the day when they escort children to the playground or by appointment. The Principal or Deputy is normally available in the foyer at the start of the Academy day, to clarify information or respond to any problems. This is a very busy time for class teachers so unfortunately they will be unable to respond to concerns at this time. If you have any concerns at any time during the academic year please contact your child’s teacher by letter or through the Principal to arrange an appointment at a mutually convenient time so that you will be free from interruption. We will also contact you if we have any concerns about your child. Each term teachers send home a curriculum jigsaw which gives details of the range of skills their children will be learning. Learning targets are also sent home.
Uniform Children are expected to wear full Academy uniform every day. The uniform consists of: • • • • • • • • • • •
White polo shirt (with Academy logo) preferable Red sweatshirt/cardigan (with Academy logo) Grey shorts, trousers, skirts or pinafore dresses Smart black shoes Waterproof coats, fleeces, hats, caps and bags (optional) Black pumps Red and white gingham dresses can be worn in the summer Grey or white socks School homework bag Water bottle Spare clothes in the Nursery
Sweatshirts, polo shirts, fleeces, coats, water bottles and bags with the Academy logo can be obtained from the office staff. Trainers should not be worn in the Academy, although they must be brought to the Academy for use at playtimes and lunchtimes in Key Stage 2.
Jewellery Jewellery is not permitted, except for children with pierced ears, who may wear studs on those days when they do not have swimming or PE. Earrings must be removed for PE lessons. If a child’s ears have very recently been pierced they may wear their studs provided that they are covered with tape by parents/carers, before they come to the Academy. Once the lesson is over they may remove the tape. A normal watch may be worn once a child is able to use it correctly. This must be removed for PE lessons. Children with long hair should tie it up. This is essential for PE lessons.
Healthy Meals and Snacks The Academy operates a healthy eating policy. At playtimes, children have fruit, vegetables and milk. Fruit and milk are provided free of charge to Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children. Key Stage 2 children may purchase fruit and milk at playtime at a cost of 20p per item. At lunchtime we encourage children to have an Academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice. Menus are available in the foyer. Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch. Please note that children are not allowed to bring crisps, sweets or chocolate into the Academy at any time in line with the healthy eating policy. Children should bring plain water to drink during the day in labelled bottles. These should be taken home and refilled each day. (For further information see Healthy Eating Policy).
Children need black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoor PE. They require black pumps.
Items of personal property should not be brought into the Academy unless there is a special reason arranged by a member of staff. If older children require mobile phones for safety reasons when making their own way home, they should be handed into the Principal’s office on arrival. The Academy accepts no liability for the loss of personal possessions. All belongings, including all items of Academy uniform should be clearly labelled.
We charge towards the cost of coach and entrance fees for trips out of the Academy. Parents/carers cannot be required to pay for activities that take place during the Academy day, but trips may not be able to take place without sufficient voluntary contributions.
For outside PE children should bring trainers. They may bring tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts or track suit tops as the weather gets colder. Trainers are also needed daily for lunchtime sports for Key Stage 2 children.
We ask for contributions for: • Extra instrumental lessons • Some extra-curricular clubs (to cover the cost of materials and equipment) • Trips • Residential visits • Visits to the Academy by theatre companies, performers or special visitors.
Birthday Treats To celebrate their birthday we encourage children to donate a book for their class. A special nameplate is put in the book and it is presented in a Celebration Assembly. They then become a member of the Birthday Bookworm Club.
The Curriculum at Oasis Academy Limeside At Oasis Academy Limeside, we believe that our children learn best: • If we give them a wide experience of different subjects and activities • If we focus on teaching them skills and how to do things • If they are actively involved, interested and enjoy their learning.
Subjects From Year 1, the Academy’s curriculum is planned to include all aspects of the ten subjects outlined in the National Curriculum. These are: Maths, English, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, ICT, Art, Music and Physical Education. Religious Education is also taught. Additionally, we have introduced regular philosophy lessons to encourage children to think, question and explain their ideas. We also place a strong emphasis on developing children’s understanding of their own and others’ needs and feelings through a programme of PSHEC (personal, social, health, education and citizenship). This may be taught as discrete lessons, integrated into others subjects, and also promoted through assemblies and day-to-day events in our Academy life.
Whenever possible, we try to make links across subjects, so that learning in one area enhances learning in another subject. Some subjects such as Maths and English are taught daily. Others are planned for over the year through whole Academy themes and topics. These themes have been chosen because they exemplify some of the values we believe are important for children’s future well being and success. Each class investigates a different aspect of the theme. These themes are: Autumn 1: Explorers Autumn 2: What does it mean to be me? Our identity & heritage Spring 1: Different cultures of the world Spring 2: Symbols, patterns and logic Summer 1: Growth Summer 2: Our world and beyond In all subjects we encourage children to ask and try to answer their own questions and explain their thinking. We aim to include trips and real experiences in our curriculum whenever we can. Different teaching methods are used at different times in the Academy. During a week, a mixture of whole class, group and individual teaching and learning will be used, depending on which is most appropriate.
A Skills Based Curriculum Every day the amount of knowledge in the world grows. At Oasis Academy Limeside we believe that it is important to teach the children the skills to be able to find out and use knowledge that they need, when they need it. Our teaching is focused on developing children’s generic learning and thinking skills as well as subject specific skills. Also we prioritise developing the key skills identified in the National Curriculum as follows:
Co m munication
This includes the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing and using them across the curriculum and in everyday situations.
Application of Nu mbers This includes developing mental and written calculation skills, using data, interpreting measurements and being able to use these skills in different subjects.
ns Technology Information and Communicatio As computers become more and more important in all aspects of life, learners need to be able to choose ICT tools to find, analyse, interpret, evaluate, and present information. They need to be able to decide when and how to use ICT. The Academy has excellent computer facilities with potential daily access for all children to our network of laptops and Apple Mac computers.
Working with oth ers
Learning to Learn This is a process of discovery about learning. It involves a set of principles and skills which, if understood and used, help learners learn more effectively and so become learners for life.
The Six Personal Learning and Thinking Skills are: Self Manager Children learn to organise themselves and others. They take responsibility and show initiative. They learn to cope with challenges and change. They manage their emotions and develop resilience and self help strategies.

Learners ask questions and carry out investigations. They learn to research and evaluate information and use it to draw conclusions.
Creative Thinker Learners think creatively by generating and exploring ideas. They look at problems from different angles to make connections and find solutions. They use imagination and intuition.
Team Worker Children develop skills of co-operating, understanding others’ needs and being able to work effectively as part of a team. They learn to take on different roles in different situations. Much of our children’s learning involves working collaboratively as a way of developing and deepening each child’s understanding.
Reflective Learner Children develop the skills of reflecting on and evaluating their own learning. They identify the strategies they have used and help the teacher plan their next steps.
Effective Participants Children actively engage with issues that affect them and others. They discuss concerns and find ways to make improvements. They play a full role in the Academy and community life. They negotiate and consider different views.
Enterprise Education At Oasis Academy Limeside we believe that we have an important role to play in equipping children with the skills they will need to have successful futures. We place a high priority on developing enterprise in its widest sense. The Academy is currently working to embed enterprise projects into all year groups.
Sex and Relationships Education Sex Education forms part of the Health and Science curriculum. Children learn about relationships within a moral, family orientated framework. They learn about themselves and other living organisms as part of the Life and Living Processes elements of the science curriculum in the Growth topic in the Summer Term. In Year 6, the Academy nurse talks to the children about puberty. Parents/carers are informed of this and given the opportunity to discuss the resources and content of these lessons. Parents/carers have a right to withdraw their child from Sex Education and should discuss this with the Principal.
We expect children to reinforce and extend the learning they are doing in the Academy at home. To this end, we set regular home learning tasks. The amount of time children are expected to spend on formal learning at home increases as they go through the Academy. Children are expected to read, learn spellings and times tables daily. In addition, they are given tasks to reinforce current topics at the Academy including in maths and English. These may be extended tasks over a period of time. Children in Years 2 to 6 have a homework diary, which can be used to promote communication between home and the Academy. Please write down anything you wish the teacher to know about their learning in your childâ€™s diary.
We have a wizard theme running through the Academy. The wizard is an expert learner. Children are encouraged to use wizard learning skills in all their Academy activities. Each week a child, who has demonstrated exceptional learning during the week is crowned the Learning Wizard in Celebration Assembly.
Collective Worship Separate key stage acts of worship; Awe Wonder and Worship, take place daily from Monday to Thursday. These are broadly Christian in tone but explore other cultures and beliefs as well as providing a chance to discuss moral issues. On Friday all classes attend a Celebration Assembly led by the Principal. Parents/carers and friends of the Academy are welcome to attend this. Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their children from acts of collective worship. Any such wishes should be discussed with the Principal.
Children at Oasis Academy Limeside are encouraged to participate in a variety of sporting activities ranging from gymnastics, dance, and small ball games to team games such as netball, football and rounders. From Year 4 onwards children attend swimming lessons.
To further enrich their lives at the Academy, children are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities. Such activities vary from year to year but normally include football, rugby, hockey, netball, gymnastics and athletics, gardening, film making, art, dance, drama, chess and choir. The Academy provides access to a peripatetic clarinet and saxophone teacher if parents/carers wish to buy extra music lessons. Most activities take place after the Academy day. Children may be asked to contribute a small fee towards the cost of providing materials for these activities.
Whilst urging the children to do their best at all times, we also believe that children should learn to enjoy taking part and that winning is not the only mark of achievement. The Academy is a member of the Sports Development Programme and benefits from participating in a range of local organised competitions. A display board in the upstairs corridor provides up to date information of events. Children are also given opportunities to develop their sporting skills at lunchtimes, when a programme of organised sports is provided.
Our Commitment to Equality
Behaviour We expect high standards of behaviour at all times. We encourage children to develop self-discipline and to care about themselves and others, respecting their rights and feelings. There are four rules throughout the Academy:
Equality and inclusion are at the heart of Oasis. We have a passion to include everyone and a deep desire to treat everyone equally. We accept others for who they are and respect differences. Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all our students. Our way of doing this is to work hard to improve students’ attainment and the standards of teaching and learning continually. At the same time, we also aim to meet the needs of the whole person and the whole community because we understand that the whole of life is education and that everyone who is part of a student’s life affects that student’s understanding of life and, therefore, his or her education. In this sense, every person matters. The Equality Act 2010 gathers together various different pieces of equality legislation which have been developed over a number of recent years. It sets out some key equality provisions for the delivery of education and a requirement for public bodies to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relationships between different groups. Against the background of the UK’s increasingly diverse communities, Oasis recognises that this Act plays a major role in recognising the UK’s historic commitment to tolerance. The Equality Act 2010 is, therefore, an important and significant piece of legislation for Oasis because its key provisions underpin the aim of Oasis itself: an equal and inclusive society in which difference is understood and respected. This Academy is committed to meeting its obligations within the law and being a good expression of Oasis’ own commitment to equality.
• Follow directions • Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself • No name calling, teasing or inappropriate language in any form • Stay on task
Special Educational Needs
Children who follow these rules consistently are rewarded with ‘Goal-den’ time on a Friday. This is a chance for children from different age groups to come together to pursue a wide variety of self-selected individual interests. Current ‘Goal-dens’ include: sports, film-making, sewing, art, construction, computers, games, comic making, chess and mind challenges.
We aim to meet the needs of all individuals within our Academy. Occasionally some children experience greater difficulties in aspects of their learning than others. These children are offered extra support within their class. They may be identified as having Special Educational Needs.
For children who do not follow the rules the following sanctions apply:
In line with the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice these children are placed on the Academy’s SEN register. Their progress is closely monitored and reviewed at regular intervals. Individual Education Plans may be written for children with Special Educational Needs and are reviewed with parents/carers at Parents/carers’ Evenings or by arrangement. If necessary the Academy is able to access many support agencies in order to help meet their needs.
Step 1 Green Card - miss all breaks / written apology / letter home / no after school clubs Step 2 Yellow Card - as above and interview with parent Step 3 Amber Card - as above and child sent home for 1 lunch break 12 noon - 1pm / further interview with parent Step 4 Red Card - all above followed by 1 day exclusion. Parent and Academy Council are informed in writing. Yellow, Amber and Red cards are given for repeated misbehaviour patterns of disobedience, bad language, aggressive behaviour, wilful damage or theft.
Gifted and Talented The Academy also keeps a register of children who have specific talents or gifts in order to better meet their learning needs.
Preliminary Warnings consisting of name up on the sheet, followed by 3 warnings then a missed break.
An exclusion can also be issued in exceptional circumstances where extreme behaviour gives the Principal no alternative or where a serious incident has to be investigated. Children begin each week with a clean start.
Oasis Academy Limeside and the Community The Academy enjoys very close links with the local community. It works closely with Contour Homes and other local agencies. It has established a strong partnership with Stanley Road Primary School, a local school, where pupils predominantly are from a different culture and ethnic background. The Academy aims to help children understand their own identity and to appreciate and value the diversity of people’s different backgrounds and circumstances (For further details see Community Cohesion Policy).
Complaints Procedure We try very hard to get things right, however like most organisations, we sometimes donâ€™t succeed. If a Parent/Carer is not happy with something that has happened at the Academy, they should tell the Academy about it as soon as possible so that it can be investigated and resolved. What to do if you have a complaint about something that has happened at the Academy. In the first instance parents/carers should discuss any concerns with the class teacher or member of staff concerned. Most worries can be addressed informally at this stage. Staff are available for informal discussions at the end of the Academy day or by appointment.
Availability of Documentation Parents/carers should note that the Academy has a great deal of documentation. Essential policies and information are contained in this prospectus. Other information is available on the website: www.limesideschool.createprimary.net or by contacting the Academy office. www.oasisacademylimeside.org
Principal: Mrs H. Arya B.Ed (Hons) N.P.Q.H. Telephone: 0161 688 7535 www.oasisacademylimeside.org Follow us on @OasisLimeside
If any issue remains unresolved after discussion and careful explanation at this stage, staff or parents/carers should arrange an appointment with the Principal. If it is difficult to discuss a matter with the class teacher or member of staff, either the Principal or Deputy are available in the foyer at the start of each day. Alternatively an appointment should be made with the Principal. The Principal will investigate any concerns raised and inform the parent/carer of their findings. In most cases, the complaint will have been resolved by this stage. However if parents/carers are still unhappy, they should make a formal complaint in writing addressed to the Chair of the Governing Body, Councillor S. Barrow, care of the Academy office. The Governing Body is responsible for acknowledging, investigating and responding to such formal complaints about the Academy. Further details are available in the Academyâ€™s Complaint Procedure available by request from the Academy office.
