In December staff at OASIS MediaCity Academy took several days of strike action in response to 13 job losses being rushed through before Xmas.
The jobs lost included:
Re (Head of dept)
PE (Head of boys PE)
Humanities (Head of year)
Attendance (Non teaching post)
Textiles (Assistant Head teacher)
PE and vocational (Assistant Head teacher)
ICT and maths (Assistant Head teacher)
English (Head of Year)
OASIS claimed that they couldn’t afford to keep the staff on.
Since Xmas OASIS have been advertising a new set of posts:
Head of Maths
Head of English
1 Teaching Assistant
With such a huge turnover of staff you have to wonder how the pupils are coping with the instability.
