Welcome to The Oaks SEND information page.
If you have any concerns about your child or would just like some advice and support, you can contact the school SENCO, Fallon Trainor at firstname.lastname@example.org What is a special need? In England, the government defines special needs as: A child has special educational needs if they have a learning problem or disability that make it more difficult for them to learn than most children their age. They may have problems with schoolwork, communication or behaviour. ‘Special educational needs’ is a legal definition and refers to children with learning problems or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children the same age.
