Oasis Academy Fir Vale - Everyone Learning Together

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity where you can help to change the lives of our children and our community?  We are seeking a passionate, motivated Deputy Principal to become part of the Senior Leadership team at our unique academy.

See the potential, make the difference!

Our ideal candidate

We are seeking an outstanding teacher with experience of successful primary school leadership.  As part of the senior leadership team you will have high expectations for all, be able to effectively apply a range of behaviour management techniques, demonstrate emotional resilience and be a champion of the Oasis ethos and 9 habits.

Our journey so far

Oasis Academy Fir Vale opened in September 2014 as a brand new purpose built Academy in the centre of the vibrant Fir Vale community in Sheffield. When full, the Academy will be a two form entry Primary School with 52 part time places available in Nursery. The Academy will expand year on year until full at 420 places. The academy is inclusive and was awarded the School of Sanctuary Award in 2018.  The Academy serves the whole community and has an ethos based on the right to respect, the right to be safe and the right to learn.   The development of an Academy hub is a priority to offer a variety of support to families and members of the local community. Oasis Academy Fir Vale benefits from being part of the Oasis northern region and particularly a Sheffield cluster.

Effective Support

By being part of 51 Oasis Academies, you will have the privilege of working alongside experienced leaders and will benefit from a strong support network and partnership within the North East region.  You will have many opportunities to develop and share best practice to drive continual improvement, including through regional improvement networks and access to a growing CPD programme nationally.
