Special Educational Needs and Disability

The school has a very well-developed department to support students with Special Educational Needs. The SENCo has a highly experienced team working with students in a variety of settings to ensure the school policy of equal access to the curriculum and learning experiences for all students is applied. Most support work takes place on an 'in class' basis, but there are opportunities for small group and individual work to take place.

Close liaison with feeder primary schools, parents and the Educational Psychologist ensures that the students with Special Educational Needs are quickly identified and appropriate support strategies developed. The provisions of the new Code of Practice are fully integrated into the workings of the school and underpin all that we do.
