Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Oasis’ ethos is based on an overarching theme of Inclusion; welcoming, encouraging and enabling all to achieve their best whatever the challenges may be in doing so.
Oasis Academy Ryelands is a non -selective Academy open to all religious faiths and those with no faith.
Oasis Academy Ryelands is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the pupils living in our local area. We believe that all pupils, including those identified as having special educational needs or a disability have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.
We believe that all pupils should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all pupils can flourish and feel safe.
Oasis Academy Ryelands is committed to inclusion. Part of the schools strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs.
We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.
If your child has specific needs that you would like to discuss in further detail please feel free to contact our Inclusion Manager, Louise Champion, at the Academy.

The staff at Oasis Academy Ryelands work together to ensure that the all the pupils’ needs are being met appropriately, every day. Our staff continuously assess pupil progress on a daily basis to ensure that they meet the expected outcomes and reach their full potential. Any pupil who is not making the expected progress will be given additional support.
If it is felt that a pupil is still not making the expected progress then a meeting will be held, with the pupil’s parents and the class teacher. The concerns will be shared and outcomes will be put into place with specific support agreed in order to meet these outcomes. The pupil’s progress will then be monitored carefully and if the suggested support does not move the child’s learning on then a referral to one of our support agencies, e.g. educational psychologist, speech and language therapist etc. will be made, with the parents’ consent.
