Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
Our highly experienced Learning Support team offers support and advice to students with learning difficulties and to their families. Whilst recognising that 'all teachers are teachers of pupils with Special Educational Needs' where appropriate we withdraw students with Educational Healthcare Plans to put individually tailored programmes into place - ranging from structured literacy and numeracy support to reading recovery and mentoring sessions.
Staff across the school are committed to promoting inclusion and independent learning alongside classroom support. Students' learning difficulties are identified through close liaison with primary schools and through testing by departmental staff and outside professionals. SEND plans are produced, up-dated and managed by departmental staff and close contact is maintained with parents as we firmly believe that, by working together, your children can achieve more.
We also strive to ensure that our site and curriculum are fully accessible for students with physical impairments. Our site is accessible for wheelchair users, with lift access to both of our first-floor facilities and we have a range of support available for students with sensory impairments.
