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.
Oasis Academy Arena is a non-selective Academy open to all religious faiths and those with no faith. We are a fully inclusive school and believe in equal opportunities for all students, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, prior attainment or background.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all students including those with special educational needs and disabilities. There is a shared expectation that all students, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and ensure they can actively participate in the wider aspects of school life.
At Oasis Academy Arena we ensure that young people and whole communities are offered the support, education and spectrum of opportunity that they deserve in order to reach their potential including students with special educational needs and disabilities. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all of our students, and endeavour to ensure the necessary provision is made for any pupil with SEND. In doing so we will fulfil the statutory duties and best practice guidelines set out in the Department for Education Code of Practice for SEN.
Who are the best people at the Academy to talk to about my child’s Special Educational Need?
Our SENCo is Liz Grimes. You can contact her either via the Academy address or by telephone or email.
