Off-Site Provision

Oakfield School – Off-Site Provision

Quality Assurance

Our Aims:

  • To ensure that the provision commissioned is of a high standard
  • To ensure value for money
  • The placement provides the need for each individual studentWe have a Learning and Behaviour Mentor that over sees the off- site provision and quality assurance process supported by the deputy head teacher. This Mentor also has responsibility for developing links to new providers, building the relationships with their staff, monitoring the placement, relationships between staff and the students, and the quality and standards of the work produced. She also maintains regular contact and communication with parents and provisions. Each student produces a file of evidence illustrating the work they have completed on their offsite placements and both students and staff complete a pro forma to evidence progress made.  
  • The majority of students are fully engaged in the main school setting, accessing a full range of subjects with the goal of achieving GCSE qualifications or equivalents.
  • Our Head of curriculum will also visit the placements termly to ensure the work is age/ability appropriate and to ensure that providers are fulfilling their obligation to provide the highest level of education and support to all students involved.
  •  Before we agree to use an offsite provision we visit the provision and see what they have to offer and what they can offer the pupils that attend Oakfield School. We then ask for an outline of the course, copies of risk assessment, insurance details, DSB numbers, copies of safeguarding certificates and a completed SLA’s. Once the discussion has been made for a student to attend the provision we ask for parental permission and we take the students for a taster day or look around.
