Dear Parent / Carer,
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to you today regarding an exciting project that every student will be a part of this year at Oasis Academy Henderson Avenue, called Oasis Horizons.
Oasis Horizons will provide every student and teaching staff member with an iPad for use in, and outside of school while they are a member of the Oasis Academy Henderson Avenue family. Due to the size of the project it will take a little while for the iPads to be prepared and distributed. We will receive the devices in the Spring or Summer term 2021. In this letter I will be explaining the reasons behind the project.
Providing each student with an iPad is the third element of a wider plan being implemented by the Oasis Learning family of 52 schools. The first part of the plan was to develop our curriculum offer so that students have real choice to high quality content that they are excited to learn about, and this work is continuing. The second aspect was to offer support and guidance to staff to enable the best possible teaching, and across the country we now have subject experts who focus on how we can best teach every subject. The third and final part of the plan is Oasis Horizons, which will make online learning accessible for everyone.
