Outreach Service at Oaklands School
Oaklands School aims to support schools both locally and across the country to improve outcomes for pupils with special educational needs. As part of this role we offer an outreach service to schools to develop your awareness of different needs and specific approaches that will raise your capacity to meet the needs of the pupils in your setting.

Volunteering & work experience placements: As a school with vulnerable pupils and complex needs, we do not accept any work experience or volunteer placements from people under 18. Over 18s are only accepted where we can get a reference from an accredited education or training setting and we have interviewed the person to assess their suitability. Our children need a low arousal environment with known adults and a clear routine so changes in staffing can be distressing for them and impact on their learning. We therefore vet candidates for placements very carefully and expect that anyone wanting to work with us as a volunteer or on placement understands this.
