Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

A message from our Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCo)  – Miss Clare Wilson

My name is Miss Clare Wilson and I am the Special Education Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO) at Oasis Academy Fir Vale.  I work in school for 3 days per week – usually Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We aim to meet the needs of all individuals within our Academy. Occasionally some children experience greater difficulties in aspects of their learning than others. They may be identified as having Special Educational Needs. In line with the new 0-25 Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice, September 2014, these children are offered SEN Support in a range of different ways targeted to meet their individual needs.

Their progress is closely monitored and reviewed at regular intervals. If necessary the Academy is able to access many support agencies in order to help meet their needs.

Involvement of children and families are at the heart of the SEND reforms, at Oasis Academy Fir Vale we provide a person centred approach to identify, assess and improve outcomes for children and young people with Special Educational Needs.
