Oakley School leads one Satellite class called Oak Class, based within the building and grounds of Skinners’ Kent Primary School. This is a specialist provision, offering an inclusive education for pupils with Special Educational Needs. Pupils are taught both within the Satellite classroom and supported to integrate into mainstream classes. All strategies used at Oakley school (for example: visuals, integrated therapy and Makaton) are embedded within lessons to ensure pupils receive the support and encouragement that they need to progress and thrive.
Pupils are taught appropriately differentiated English and Maths lessons where our team use a range of personalised strategies, including visuals and concrete manipulatives, to support learning and extend pupils’ understanding. If appropriate, pupils may integrate during these lessons, with support from the Satellite team.
SKPS offers the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum for England. For more details, please visit the SKPS website (link below).
Skills for Life and Independence are embedded throughout the school day within Oak class (for example during lunch times, collecting equipment for lessons, getting ready for PE and getting ready for home time). Moreover, pupils integrate within whole school activities (such as break and lunch times, assemblies and school trips) and independence skills are taught, modelled and encouraged to support pupils with this integration.
