Every child matters at The Oak Tree Academy and we are committed to ensuring that all children are given the best possible opportunity to meet their full potential. Staff are dedicated to understanding the individual needs of pupils.
We aim to be inclusive for all pupils and parents/carers regardless of any additional need and disability. In order to achieve this we have the following in place:
Contained within these links are SEN contact details for parents to access support and information within the academy, the local authority and/or parent support services.
However the Key points to note are:
The child, parent, school and partnership services will be working together to provide the best SEND support for your child.
Pupils who previously may be registered on our school SEN register as School Action or School Action plus will now be combined and registered as SEND SUPPORT.
For pupils who have previously had a Statement of Educational Need, these will gradually (up until 2018) be transferred to a new Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) with a “One Plan” individualised package of support. New referrals will be through EHCP system.
We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the Academy, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and feel able to participate fully in academy life.
The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender, SEN and Pupil Premium entitlement, and we will use this data to support pupils, to raise standards and ensure quality first inclusive teaching, thus helping all pupils achieve their maximum potential.
We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereo-types and creating an environment which champions respect for all.
