SEN & Disabilities
At the heart of all our work is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of our students. The majority of students will learn and progress within these arrangements, however, those whose overall attainments and achievement in specific subjects fall significantly outside the expected range, may need additional support.
We support students with a wide range of needs which makes us a very inclusive school. Support is organised by our Special Educational Needs Coordinator who works with a team of Teaching Assistants. Students may receive support in class, in small withdrawal groups and sometimes individually. The SEND Team also run a range of interventions designed to support our students in accessing the Curriculum and preparing for adult life.
Our SEND Access for All Policy and SEND Information Report, detail how we aim to ensure that the necessary provision is made for any student who has a Special Educational Need or Disability and those needs are made known to all staff that are likely to work with them.
All students with Special Educational Needs have access to specialist resources where necessary. This may include Teaching Assistant time, small group withdrawal, one to one work and specialist materials (including computer software).
As a modern building our school is fully compliant with the Disability and Discrimination Act.
