About us

Oakridge is a diverse two form entry school in the heart of High Wycombe.
At Oakridge we value the wellbeing and mental health of our pupils and staff. We believe that this comes first, before academic attainment. Our children are amazing.

They are kind, respectful and enjoy school. However some need extra emotional, nurture and wellbeing support


About the role

This is a rewarding role working with children who really need our support. You will be supporting individuals and small groups. These may include children who are Young carers; Year 1 children who are finding transition from reception challenging; children who find self-regulation challenging and children who may face challenges at home. You will have your own bespoke room to do this in and will work very closely with our excellent family and Welfare Officer as well as our Assistant Head for Inclusion.

About you
