SEND Information Report 2023-2024

 

Oxford Spires Academy (OSA) is an inclusive mainstream school where all teachers have a responsibility for students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). OSA is proud to offer a broad and balanced curriculum to all its students, offering targeted support when needed. 

Students identified as having SEND included on our SEND Register at two levels: Education, Health and Care Plan (E) and Special Educational Needs Support (K). In line with the Code of Practice, 2014, students’ needs are then identified as: Social, Emotional and Mental Health, Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning and Sensory and/or Physical. 

The Special Educational Needs Department consists of a dedicated team with a wide range of knowledge and skills. The department works in conjunction with students, parents/carers and teachers to ensure a whole school approach to supporting each student. We strongly believe that a positive home school relationship is critical in supporting special educational needs. 

OSA is fortunate to have a large SEND area, known as Academic Support. Whist the majority of support offered is within classrooms, individual and small group support may take place in Academic Support. Students can also find lunch and homework clubs in this area.
