What the school says...

Oxted School, part of The Howard Partnership Trust, is amongst the largest and most dynamic comprehensive schools in the country. Nestled at the foot of the North Downs in the lush countryside of East Surrey, the School has a unique character and ethos which draws out the best from every individual student who we have the privilege to educate.

Founded in 1929, Oxted School is strongly rooted in the local community, and combines the traditions and values of the last 87 years with the very best facilities and the latest developments in Quality First Teaching. Academic rigor is combined with a strong emphasis on creativity and physical activity, supported by an inclusive House system providing tailored pastoral care. Students benefit from a vast array of enrichment activities, including one of the largest Duke of Edinburgh programmes in England, and leave the School as confident, well-rounded, community minded individuals: ready to face life's many challenges.

Special Education Needs

Oxted School has had a Specialist Centre for the Visually Impaired since 1988. The current Specialist Centre for the Visually Impaired is housed on the ground floor of the Meridian Building and comprises a suite of several small teaching and equipment rooms and two offices. The main body of the department is fitted with the resources, technology and specialist equipment which enables the VI team to adapt all the resources for the students we support. The level of adaptation will depend on whether the resources are required in large print, or in a tactile version, such as braille. The Specialist Centre supports both blind and visually impaired students and is one of five such bases in Surrey – three in secondary schools and two in primary. It can currently accommodate up to 12 students. All students will have a Statement of Special Educational Needs which details Visual Impairment as their primary need. Some students come from bordering authorities such as Croydon, Bromley, Sutton or Kent. The students are fully included in mainstream lessons and are withdrawn from some lessons to focus on specific skills such as mobility, life skills or Braille Maths. “… the Centre excels at developing independence in their students. There is a real focus on ensuring that students are not only successful in their current setting but ensuring that they have the skills, knowledge, ability and resilience to be successful beyond school” - PSSS Joint Monitoring Visit, December 2015. The school has an experienced inclusion team which has expertise in special educational needs, behaviour, removing social barriers and developing emotional well-being. All students are screened for literacy and for their cognitive ability when they first join. These results are explained and shared with staff. Students who are identified as having below average standard scores are then assessed in a more in-depth test. Any student identified as having complex needs is placed on a SEND Support Arrangements document, where identified staff work in the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ format to meet the needs of this young person. We have a tailored personalised curriculum for some of our students. When the school has a significantly low attaining student, they are likely to follow a modified curriculum which includes additional maths and English lessons. We hold meetings with parents before options evening at KS4 so both parents and our young people are fully aware of the options and challenges each route will pose for them. The curriculum choices at KS4 are broad and varied and we offer support, advice and guidance throughout the options process. The curriculum in Year 7, 8 and 9 is challenging and has been modified to meet the new government standards.
