Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


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 (SEN) 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 by teachers with children and parents. Children identified as having special educational needs will be supported by their teacher using the graduated response - a toolkit of support and strategies available at Limeside. If necessary the Academy is able to access many support agencies provided by the Local Authority in order to help meet their needs.

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