Families First Quality Award for SEND Standards

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Oakwood Junior School is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the Families First Quality Award for Special Education (SEN).

The assessor commented: ‘The school has demonstrated a commitment to supporting its pupils and those with SEN via a broad and impressive portfolio of evidence. Parental contributions have hilighted the staff’s achievements that have made a real impact on families in both curricular and pastoral support. The engagement of families has been shown using traditional and digital methods, sharing resources that enable SEN support not only in the school’s setting but at home.”


The whole school is pleased that this award recognises our ongoing commitment to supporting both children with additional needs and their families.
