Our special educational needs co-ordinator (SENDCO) for Early Years and KS1 is Mrs McAllister and the KS2 SENDCo is Mrs S Tucker. Any appointments to meet with either SENDCo can be made via the school office.
At Oakhill Primary School we are proud to provide a safe, stimulating and inclusive learning environment where every member of our community is valued and respected.
Our broad, balanced, creative curriculum and enrichment activities provide opportunities for everyone to achieve and succeed.
We celebrate our achievements, gifts and cultural diversity, irrespective of individual
differences within the protected categories of the Equality Act of 2010. Together we take pride in making a positive contribution to our school and the wider community.
At Oakhill children should acquire:
a sense of self respect
the capability to live as independent, self-motivated adults
the ability to function as contributing members of co-operative groups
We will strive to ensure that if a child has a Special Educational Need it is identified at the earliest opportunity and that early action is taken to meet those needs.
We place the rights of children with Special Educational Needs Disability (SEND) at the heart of school policy and ensure that children are involved with decisions taken about the education they receive.
We try to ensure that we have a clear and flexible strategy for working with children with SEND and parents are encouraged to play an active role in the education of their children.
We believe that all pupils, whatever their ability or specific need, have a right to a broad, balanced and scaffolded curriculum relevant to their needs.
At Oakhill we value all children and recognise that all children may at some time be entitled to special needs provision and that this may include children who are Gifted and/or Talented (please refer to Gifted and Talented policy)
The Headteacher, staff and governors will do their best to secure appropriate provision for any pupil who has an identified SEND.
Our ethos is aimed at enabling children with SEND to maximise their potential, be included fully in our school community and make a successful transition to secondary school and into adult life.
Our whole school has a shared responsibility for identifying, assessing and meeting the individual pupil needs.
We strive to ensure that each pupil be fully integrated into the life of the school and be given every opportunity to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and independence.
