SEND

At Oxhey First school, our aim is to ensure all children are supported in order that they may work confidently towards reaching their full potential. We strongly believe in the role of Quality First Teaching and curriculum entitlement for all children, regardless of their ability or background. We intend to remove barriers to learning, raise expectations and levels of achievement and work in partnership with other agencies to achieve this.
Our SENDCo is Mrs E Holt.

So much of our communication now happens online, either by messages, in a game or through a video call. The link to the NSPCC website below gives parents and carers a wealth of tips on how to keep their children safe online and to ensure they receive positive experiences when accessing the internet.
