We employ a dedicated team of Family Support Workers. They are here to support parents and carers whilst their child is at Oakfield Short Stay School. Prior to a child starting at our school, parents and carers will have had at least one induction meeting.  They will be given the name of their link Family Support Worker who will work closely with the family and will explain how the school will support your child.
