Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

At George Dixon International School we have a “whole-school” approach to the education of students with special educational needs. All teachers share responsibility for the identification, assessment and provision appropriate to meeting individual student needs within their own curriculum area.
The work of the Student Support Department interconnects and underpins the practice of other departments. Students with special educational needs have access to all National Curriculum subjects. Students are taught in mainstream teaching groups, and are placed in groups as part of the whole school setting process. In-class learning support is provided where possible.
The Student Support manager has prime responsibility for promoting awareness of the needs of students with special educational needs, and for encouraging and supporting the development of appropriate opportunities and resources throughout all aspects of school life. We offer extra support through: registration classes, lunchtime reading classes, after school classes, mentoring and 1:1 support in the Student Support base. Outside agencies work in partnership with Student Support and Pastoral teams to support: learning, behaviour and to monitor progress of individual students when required.

Understanding the road risks in your local area

As many of us do, AXA Insurance and Road Safety Analysis believe that one child casualty on Britain’s roads is too much.

The data is presented by local area in order to aid the understanding of risk – it’s not just about killed or seriously injured, but about any incident reported to the police. Although road safety issues may arise due to a myriad of different reasons including proximity to busy roads and local speed limits, schools play a pivotal role in mitigating these risks by investing time in road safety education programmes.
