Special education needs
Ashford Oaks is a highly inclusive school. All staff are responsible for all our pupils. The mainstream core standards are integral to our provision.
We regularly review pupils’ progress to inform support and interventions. Our SEN pupils are supported by teachers, teaching assistants, a speech and language HLTA (High Level Teaching Assistant) and an intervention HLTA.
Outside agency professionals offer expertise, training programmes of support as necessary, as do our own ASD Specialist Provision team.
Interventions include those to support the development of maths, literacy, speech and language, memory, motor skills, handwriting and social skills.
We actively encourage an open door policy to enable parents to voice any concerns they have regarding their child’s progress and be fully aware of the support they are receiving in school. Parents are encouraged to work together with us to help their child overcome any barriers to learning.
