Learning Support

Oaktree is an inclusive school where each child is valued as an individual and is encouraged to reach their full potential.

Our Learning Support Team welcome children who have additional learning needs and develop individual plans to suit their requirements. For some, this will be a short-term plan to overcome a particular barrier, whilst for others there may be the need for ongoing support.

Where children are identified, or have been assessed, as having an additional need, our team will work with the child, their parents and any outside agencies involved to develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Speech and language and Occupational Therapy specialists will work with our children within the school and we will develop a network of external specialists and advisors to support the team as required.

Wherever possible, we will support children to achieve within the classroom

English as an Additional Language

As an international school, we understand that some of our children will speak little or no English when they join us, however, with the support of our trained EAL team, we are confident that they will soon be able to fully access the curriculum and build the friendships that they need to enjoy their time at our school.

Gifted and Talented

G&T students are equally valued at Oaktree and will be given appropriate additional challenges to ensure that their unique talents are fully engaged and developed. A differentiated learning plan will be created, extending each child in the classroom whilst mentors will be assigned across groups of children with similar interests and abilities to enhance their learning. There are a wide range of competitions and events, which can be accessed in the UAE or on-line, to ensure that the talents of our children are celebrated.
