We believe that inclusion is at the heart of every classroom and that all students have the right to be safe and achieve.
The SEN faculty work closely with staff across the curriculum to ensure that all students can access lessons and make progress. The SEN team visit feeder primary schools and run additional transition sessions for students who could find the transition from primary to secondary school difficult. The team also attends annual reviews for students who have Education Health Care Plans and Individual Pupil Resource to ensure that that information is gathered about students and that the right support is in place. We have a dedicated and well trained team who can be contacted easily.
Furthermore, the SEN team run a number of interventions including:
Literacy and numeracy
Social and Emotional skills
Speech, language and communication
Students are also supported through the RAISE curriculum and by specialist teaching staff. We have a dedicated physical disabilities team and a nurture provision for students with social, emotional and mental health needs.
For further information about the support we offer to students with Special Educational Needs, please see our local offer.
