SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

Our Vision for SEND Provision

 

We are all different and we all have our own individual needs and talents. At Oakfield Primary School we recognise and celebrate difference and we believe all children deserve to experience success. All of our staff are responsible for delivering this. We are all teachers of children with Special Educational Needs, which includes our More Able, Gifted and Talented pupils. Through an inclusive and child-centred ethos, along with a strong partnership between home and school, every child will achieve their full potential.

 

At Oakfield we pride ourselves on our inclusive ethos. We believe in equal opportunities for all. Our staff are skilled in using a variety of strategies, when supporting children with a range of different educational needs and disabilities. It is important that the links between home and school are strong, and hence we encourage parents/guardians to speak with their child's class teacher or Miss McGuffie (SENDCo), about any concerns or queries. Appointments can be made by contacting the school office.
