A starting point for all pupils is the delivery of high-quality teaching.
We strive to ensure that all classrooms, resources and teaching styles are accessible to pupils with a wide range of support needs.
If a student is not making progress despite high quality teaching and appropriately differentiated resources and teaching styles a referral is made to the Learning Support Faculty and the school’s Well-being Team.
Tailored interventions and Learning Support Assistant support can then be offered to targeted pupils from school departments, the Learning Support department and the school’s Well-being Team.
Learning Support provides a staffed lunch and break club and pupils are welcome before and after school in the Learning Support area.
We have a highly skilled and dedicated team of Learning Support Assistants who work closely with all departments to provide targeted support in lessons.
We believe in rewarding students with SEND as much as possible to raise their self esteem and confidence and we have an Inclusion Programme to teach the school community about SEND and how to be supportive of those with SEND.
We believe that a close working relationship between pupils, parents/carers and outside agencies is key to supporting all children with additional needs.
