Student Wellbeing

At The Oxford Academy, we are comitted to making sure that student feel safe, valued and have the opportunity to talk if they need to. 

We have a number of groups available within the school day for students who feel it may benefit them:

  • LGBT+ Support Group - Every Friday 1st break in E0.19 - this is a friendly group for likeminded people who meet to raise awareness and talk about issues which affect them.
  • Young Carers Support Group - Week A Wednesday 1st break in F1.35 - this group is for young carers to talk to others who have a caring role at home, to talk through any struggles they might be having and feed back to the school with new ideas of how we can support them.
  • TOA Christian Union - Fridays 2nd break C0.13 - this group is for anyone with an interest in religion and is run by Oxford Schools Chaplaincy. Please make sure you get a student pass from your tutor.

If students feel that they need to talk about a sensitive issue, or something which is worrying them, they can ask to speak to their Learning Mentor, Head of Year or Tutor at any time.
