How We Can Help

Need Types

There are four need types that fall under SEN, each requiring different support and provisions. A child with more than one need type is referred to as having complex needs. Although students on the SEN register do get placed into one or more of these need groups, at The Oxford Academy we firmly believe that every student is an individual. This means that two students with the same need type likely benefit from different things. Therefore we aim to cater to the individual needs of each of our students, wherever possible.
