Trauma Informed Schools

We are proud to be the first in the UK to be awarded the Mentally Healthy Organisation award by TIS UK. 

A trauma informed school is one that is able to support children who suffer with trauma or mental health problems and whose troubled behaviour acts as a barrier to learning. 


We have Helping Us Thrive (HUT)i at Oakwood and these give children access to well trained pastoral support throughout the day when necessary.  


Within the Trust we follow a Ready, Respectful and Safe approach based on Trauma Informed Schools (TIS) practice. Trust wide, and whole school training, ensures that each school is a nurturing and supportive environment which supports children emotionally and socially so that they are emotionally ready to learn. See the Trust Inclusion Policy and SEND and Inclusion Policy. It is our mission at Oakwood to be inclusive and to support children to be ready to learn.
