Oxfordshire School Inclusion Team (OXSIT) - traded offer

The team of OXSIT Inclusion Consultants offer support to mainstream primary and secondary schools

OXSIT Inclusion Consultants are experienced SENCOs and school leaders. We offer support to primary and secondary schools across Oxfordshire to:

  • Improve inclusive practice
  • Improve engagement in education
  • Improve progress and attainment of learners vulnerable to under-achievement

We support the strategic development of inclusion provision in schools with a particular focus on early identification and improving provision for pupils at SEN Support by developing an effective graduated response that improves outcomes for learners.

We teach on the master’s level course for the National Award for SENCOs (NASENCO) at Oxford Brookes University. We also provide training for governors and school leaders. This includes carrying out SEN and Pupil Premium reviews for schools and supporting with development planning.
