Special Educational Needs
Oakfield aims to support students with additional needs by removing barriers to learning and participation. We ensure that all students have access to an appropriate level of education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential, and that they receive sufficient support to reach for these goals.
Miss Bray is our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) and works with the team to support the school, pupils, parents and agencies.
We are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils. At times, some of our children will need additional support. We will facilitate this by following these objectives:
Involve parents/carers as partners
Provide, provision for meeting pupils’ special educational needs, the setting and marking of work appropriate to the individual need of the child, and where necessary through the development of individual or group learning programmes
Foster and maintain links with all outside agencies, educational support services, secondary and special schools
Initiate and facilitate staff development programmes concerned with special educational needs
Ensure that our school provides for equal access in line with the Disability Discrimination Act
Our ‘Local Offer’ for pupils with special education and health needs, gives greater detail of our provision and is published on our school website or available in hard copy from the School Office.
