Special Educational Needs


Helping students reach their full potential Learning Support in Oaklands CC The management and teaching staff of Oaklands Community College are committed to providing all of its students with the highest possible standards of teaching, and opportunities for learning, in a caring and supportive environment. With a view to enabling students attain to their full potential, the SEN department of Oaklands CC provide students with support across all curricular areas where deemed appropriate. Support may also be provided in developing social and personal development, interpersonal skills, organisation skills and wellbeing. There is a blended approach to the delivery of learning support, from in class support, withdrawal to small groups and in some instances one to one teaching.


The goal of the Oak Centre is to support each student to achieve to their potential. For some students this simply means providing a safe and relaxing environment that they have ready access to whenever they need to de-stress. Other students can require higher levels of support so they may attend the Oak Centre for several classes a day for both relaxation and social skills development.
