OASIS is an alternative provision for KS2 children with SEMH needs. We are based at Swinnow Primary School, but provide places for children from 37 schools in the west of Leeds. Children continue with their academic learning, but also access a range of therapeutic style interventions to help them develop the skills they need to succeed at school. Some of our children are with us for a few weeks; other have longer placements. Most of our children return to their original schools; others move on to a different school or specialist provision.
