About us

The Oaks is a primary pupil referral unit providing support for children experiencing significant social, emotional or behavioural difficulties in their mainstream primary school. Children may be supported by outreach or by attendance at The Oaks.

We take children from maintained primary schools in the Chiltern and South Buckinghamshire districts but occasionally support pupils from Aylesbury and Wycombe according to availability of placements and needs. We have very small classes, normally with a maximum of six children: each class typically has one teacher and at least one learning support assistant. Staff also go out to mainstream schools to support children in that environment.

Children normally attend The Oaks for one/two day a week and stay at their usual school for the other days.  A placement generally lasts for two to three terms.
