As a community of pupils, staff, parents and govenors, St Anne's are determined to ensure that girls with additional educational needs are able to receive the highest quality education. We recognise that the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well being of every pupil matter. We seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude pupils with additional educational needs.
All staff embrace the responsiblity for identifying pupils with additional educational needs and St Anne's have a stringent screening, monitoring and assessment process for each pupil.
Staff work closely with the SENCo, Assistant AEN Co-ordinator, Teaching Assistants and Learning Mentors to ensure that all pupils have equal opportunity and access to the cirriculum.
Subject Leaders are responsible for putting into place schemes of work that assist the subject teacher to plan and implement teaching and learning strategies to meet the diverse needs of pupils in the classroom.
Pupils with additional needs are fully supported within the classroom via a differentiated cirriculum and Teaching Assistants. The support is for targeted pupils whose additional needs have been identified and support has been agreed on the pupil's Individual Education Plan. Where appropriate the pupils are withdrawn for individual and small group work.
Our Student Support Centre (funded through the Excellence in Cities initiative) provides additional short term 1:1 or small group workshops to explore social, emotional, behavioural and organisational issues.
St Anne's works very closely and is fully supported by our linked outside agencies and support groups.
