At Oakway Academy, in order for us to meet the wide range of needs of our children and families, we have a large, experienced and skilled inclusion staff team.

‘The school’s work to promote pupils personal development and welfare is good.’

The inclusion provision for Oakway Academy varies depending on the needs of the children; these are identified by families, teachers and/or external services. Northamptonshire Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) is a coordinated multi-agency programme for building capacity within schools through training, support and introducing new programmes and approaches to better meet the mental health needs of all children.

Oakway Academy implements many of the recognised TaMHS programmes and is also involved in a TaMHS project.

Our Inclusion Leaflet, enclosed, gives more detailed information on the wide range of strategies, interventions and programmes implemented by the Inclusion team and classroom teachers.

Where appropriate, inclusion support is sought from a wide range of outside agencies including; Educational Psychologist, Community Paediatrician, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Sleep Solutions, Specialist Support Service and Target Autism.
