Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Oasis’ ethos is based on an overarching theme of Inclusion; welcoming, encouraging and enabling all to achieve their best whatever the challenges may be in doing so.

We aim to meet the needs of all individuals within our Academy. Occasionally some children experience greater difficulties in aspects of their learning than others. They may be identified as having Special Educational Needs. In line with the new 0-25 Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEN) Code of Practice, September 2014, these children are offered SEN Support in a range of different ways targeted to meet their individual needs.

Their progress is closely monitored and reviewed at regular intervals by teachers with children and parents. If necessary the Academy is able to access many support agencies provided by the Local Authority in order to help meet their needs.

Involvement of children and families are at the heart of the SEND reforms, at Oasis Academy Byron we provide a person centred approach to identify, assess and improve outcomes for children and young people with Special Educational Needs.

Who are the best people at the Academy to talk to about my child’s Special Educational Need?

Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCo) / Inclusion Officer is Mrs Sarah Small

Our SEND Governor is Mrs Nickie Cotter.

Both can be contacted via written correspondance or email to the school. Mrs Small can also be contacted by telephone at the academy.
