We have a growing and dynamic Therapy Team, headed up by our Team Leader, Eileen Bristow (who is a member of the Extended Leadership Team), which includes Speech & Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Therapy Assistants, Art Psychotherapists and Play Therapist, working across all sites. Some members of the team are provided by the Health Service and others work directly for the school.
The Therapists are an integral part of the Oakley team, working closely with Teachers and Learning Support Assistants to promote the very best outcomes for our children and young people. We have been investing heavily in our therapy resources and with the help of the Friends of Oakley, will be further improving the Sensory Integration Room at the Tunbridge Wells site during 2016.
Where applicable our Therapists have input into pupil progress reports and attend EHCP and Annual Review meetings. They are also present at most school events including parents' evenings.
