Oakleigh School provides for children who have severe and complex learning difficulties. Classes are organised within the key stages (in exceptional circumstances this may change) and children are grouped in order to deliver outstanding teaching strategies to meet their needs. From September 2022 the school expanded to have a satellite provision based at Queenswell School for Reception and year 1 children with a diagnosis of Autism
Oakleigh has a large staff team comprising skilled and committed teachers, learning support assistants, mealtime supervisors, site manager, administrative staff and ICT support who are full supported by a range of other professionals (see Therapists and Health, Family Support Team). The multidisciplinary team all work together to ensure the very best outcomes are met for all our children.
Children may visit local school supported by Oakleigh staff and we also welcome our mainstream peers into school for positive inclusion opportunities with the wider community.
