Outreach

Assistant Headteacher: Outreach, Satellite and the Wider Curriculum

At Oakley School, we offer Outreach services to local, maintained Primary and Secondary schools. This support can be accessed via the Local Inclusion Form Team (LIFT) as part of the Tunbridge Wells Local Offer.

 

We work in partnership with the Specialist Teaching and Learning Service (STLS) based at Broomhill Bank School. Please visit https://www.broomhillbank.org.uk/1336/stls to find out more about STLS.

 

The Oakley Outreach Offer includes:

 

  • Outreach visits: one of our highly experienced SEND teachers visits a mainstream setting to provide them with advice and suggested strategies to support children’s learning and well-being
  • In-reach visits: colleagues at local mainstream schools are invited to spend time at Oakley School to observe strategies, visuals and supports used within our classrooms
  • School to School support: we provide whole school support, training and workshops. We work closely with SENCos, Leadership Teams, Teachers and support staff to upskill them and promote inclusion
  • SENCo Open Evenings and Workshops
  • Outreach from our Specialist Nursery (https://www.oakleyschool.co.uk/specialist-nursery/)
  • Attendance at LIFT meetings

 

If you have any questions or would like to get in contact with the Oakley Outreach team, please email outreach@oakley.kent.sch.uk 

Mainstream Core Standards

The standards detail the provision that the local area expects to be made available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities attending mainstream schools and provides guidance for schools, parent/carers and professionals working with children and young people.

Supporting the Mental Health and Well-being of Pupils with SEND

We have created an online toolkit to support the mental health and well-being of pupils with SEND. This is an interactive toolkit of suggested strategies which could be used within your setting to support pupils to successfully access the curriculum, by supporting their mental health and well-being. The suggestions in this toolkit can be adapted from Reception to Year 11 and this could be used as an online resource for teachers to dip in and out of, or could be used as part of a staff meeting or your school’s CPD offer. We hope this is helpful and offers some strategies to support pupils with SEND with their mental-health and well-being. To access the resource, please click the following link: https://prezi.com/view/AfcCW97WAURaI6vP4MyS/ Just click on the blue bubbles for advice in specific areas, or start on the introduction bubble and click the next arrow to work your way through the whole toolkit. If you have any questions or would like further support with supporting the mental health and well-being needs of pupils with SEND, please email outreach@oakley.kent.sch.uk
