Cowes Enterprise College SEND strategy 2021-2023:

Inclusion – OASIS

Cowes Enterprise College has an excellent Inclusion department co-ordinating provision for children who require additional support with their learning. These students may have learning difficulties, difficulties involving from social, emotional and mental health issues, communication problems or physical disabilities. The Inclusion Department has a strong team of specialist staff who support the students to overcome their difficulties and to ensure that they can achieve their potential. Students’ needs are identified and met wherever possible within the classroom and the use of differentiated resources and strategies are targeted to the individual.

Information is provided for teachers through student passports which are designed to help teachers deliver the curriculum as effectively as possible to all students. We also maintain close links with a wide spectrum of specialist practitioners and external agencies and use their guidance to inform our teaching. The Learning Support team offer a variety of clubs after school and run social skills, life skills and behaviour management groups. The inclusion area has a specific “safe haven” for vulnerable youngsters which is staffed at all times and available before school, at break, and at lunchtime.

Partnership with families is vital and we aim to ensure that parents are fully informed of their child’s progress and positively involved in their learning. The Inclusion Team are passionate about their work and aim to provide a safe, happy environment to enable the youngsters to enjoy their learning and reach their potential academically, emotionally and socially.
