At Oakfield, we recognise that any child may require extra help with schoolwork during their time spent with us.

We have a wonderful team of Teaching Assistants working within the school.  Some work exclusively delivering intervention and in monitoring roles, others work directly in the classroom supporting the teacher.  

This can include small group work as well as supporting individuals with specific tasks. Most TAs are keyworkers to a handful of students who need that extra regular contact with home. 

We are holding half termly SEND Coffee Mornings/afternoon sessions for parents to attend. Following parent feedback we are looking to arrange external visitors to these sessions, the first session on 18.1.2023 will be attended by two personnel from SENDIAS.


This will be reviewed and updated regularly by Alison Ingram -Assistant Head Teacher Inclusion and Nathan Webb - Assistant SENDCo. A school SEND report will be published annually on our SEND documents page along with our SEND Policy.

Alison Ingram Assistant Head Teacher Inclusion can be contacted on 01373 462539

Nathan Webb Assistant SENDCo can be contacted on 01373 462539.


Tracey Malley Admin support for SEND, Inclusion & Intervention can be contacted on 01373 462539.
