Special Education Needs
All of the pupils at Forest Oak have moderate learning difficulties and have statements of educational need. The difficulties cover a broad range. Pupils have access to the statutory curriculum, differentiated according to their needs. Each class has a learning support assistant. In order to support pupils with communication difficulties, staff receive training in the use of Makaton signing and the Widget symbol system. In addition to moderate learning difficulties, Forest Oak caters for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder, ADD and ADHD, and has experience of dealing with emotional social behavioural disorders, visual and hearing impairments and physical disabilities. Staff work in conjunction with outside agencies to provide the best possible support for pupils. A speech and language therapist is attached to the school. Pupils are assessed on an ongoing basis. Optional SATs testing is used to assess at the end of Key Stages. Pupils in Key Stage 4 are prepared for accreditation in English, Maths, Science and Life Skills. In addition, they have a choice of performing or expressive arts.
