Oracle Schools strive for excellence in all aspects of their curriculum and delivery, and are committed to providing a respectful and nurturing environment.

We aim to be a beacon of good practice, producing successful, measurable outcomes in all aspects of our work with young people. Our aim is to ensure that all students are able to reach their full potential whatever that may be and that they develop an understanding of the value of education.

Oracle adopts an integrated approach to learning. All those involved in the therapeutic care and education of our young people actively promote skills, knowledge and learning in a caring environment where safeguarding is at the forefront. Our learning environment is designed to offer structure, routine and variety, and help overcome learning barriers. We follow a full-time learning programme catering for all abilities.

We deliver provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) through a well-planned and structured curriculum and environment that includes a wide range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, Media, Citizenship, Drama, ICT, Food & Nutrition, Art , Sport, PE , SMSC and Duke of Edinburgh.

We ensure excellent communication with all relevant individuals, bodies and institutions . Each student is supported based upon an evaluation of the supporting documents and consultation at transition. Teaching is in both groups and on an individual basis with appropriate TA support by trained staff.
Educational topics are designed to provide a range of experiences that will enthuse, motivate and challenge, broadening the young person’s outlook on life and developing their understanding of living within British society today.

Head of Education Services - Swavek Nowakiewicz

BedfordSchoolStaffPortraits16I’m a passionate, dedicated and enthusiastic senior manager with over 17 years’ experience of working in the SEND environment in a variety of different roles including Head Teacher, Executive Head Teacher, Principal and as from September 2017 as Head of Education Services for Oracle Care and Education. I’m recognised as a highly skilled leader with a successful track record of working closely with other professionals, developing long-term strategic school improvement plans and innovations to impact positively on education of most vulnerable  and disengaged pupils. My recent achievements have included developing a number of strategic plans, which have successfully raised the quality and performance of schools to become sector-leaders.

Prior to joining Oracle Care and Education I was Principal of a residential school that was part of the Priory Group, which provided education for 65 Autistic students aged 6 to 19 years, some of whom had very complex needs. Key focuses within this role were developing and implementing new strategies in order to raise the schools profile and to assure the quality of the children’s outcomes and ensure alignment with standards of the Autism Education Trust (AET) and new Ofsted regulations.

Prior to working in the residential school I led a group of independent SEN schools within the South West of England, with between 16 and 40 pupils in each school.  My key functions included leading Curriculum Development and SEN support provision as well as taking a proactive role in the overall development of schools within the group.

I look forward to working with the Oracle School Headteachers and the school’s staff in raising the standard of education which we provide. I also look forward to working with parents, guardians, carers, Placing Authorities and the professionals involved with supporting our pupils in order to collectively secure their achievements.
