OAK Provision

OAK logo 22

At Heathcote we are proud to offer the OAK Alternative Provision. The OAK is a short term therapeutic provision for secondary age pupils, from across the borough, who are not able to engage in education due to trauma or mental health issues.  Pupils at the OAK are dual registered with their mainstream education provider, who continue to provide them with online academic work, which they do daily when with us.  The morning timetable consists of therapeutic sessions which support pupils to gain in resilience and aim to support them to return to their mainstream school at the end of their placement.


Their time at the OAK is split over twelve weeks.  The first six weeks they are exclusively at the OAK, the second six is a transition period, where they are slowly returning to their mainstream school, with lots of support from the OAK team.


The OAK staff work alongside Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Social Care teams to make sure that their pupils are offered holistic care.
