The school is experienced at providing additional support for pupils with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Pupils identified as in need of extra help are placed at SEN Support or have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan which is issued by the Local Authority.
Additional help can occur in many ways depending on the pupil’s needs – for example:
- Smaller teaching groups for English and/or mathematical lessons.
- Early morning reading/spelling sessions.
- Handwriting sessions.
- Support in lessons from a Teaching Assistant.
- Access arrangements.
- Additional help with homework/classwork during lunchtime.
- A supervised area during lunchtime.
The Learning Support Department has a designated room from which to operate.
Pupil’s progress is monitored closely and parents are kept informed about the additional help their child is receiving.
Pupils’ with Special Education Needs and Disabilities are fully integrated into the life of the school taking the fullest part possible in the social and extra curricular activities available to all pupils. Ensuring all pupils feel happy and safe in school. This ensures that they achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum.
The admission arrangements for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at ‘SEN Support’ are exactly the same as for any other pupil. Pupils with a ‘Statement of Educational Needs’ or an ‘Education Health Care Plan’ are placed (in school) by the Local Authority.
The Governing Body includes a member with specific responsibility for SEN.
If you would like to discuss anything about SEN/D please feel free to contact our SENCO, Mrs Stokes on 01939 260296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
