SEND

Oakgrove School prides itself on promoting a learning environment which encourages resilience and enables all students to become independent learners.

The support provided to a student with SEND is based on a full understanding of the student’s particular strengths and needs; the school seeks to address this by using early identification of needs to provide targeted support and intervention, which reduces barriers to learning and enables progress. Oakgrove understands that no two students' needs are the same and they often change over time, as a result staff feel passionately about being innovative in their approach. The school try to build a positive partnership, where professionals and parents/carers work together and are fully involved in the support for their child. Regular meetings are held with parents, teachers, the SENDCo or Deputy SENDCo and the student to review progress and the programme of learning.

The aim is to provide an inclusive education for all learners; including those with special needs or disabilities. Students with SEND have their needs met through ‘Quality First Teaching’, with the option of additional complimentary support where necessary, including: for all learners; including those with special needs or disabilities.
