Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

Priory Community School has a skilled Team of Teaching Assistants who provide support in or out of the classroom on a one to one or small group basis. Such support is often put into place before students arrive at Priory due to the thorough transition process and good communication between our staff and the local primary schools. Small groups of students with specific literacy difficulties are withdrawn to our Key Stage 3 Support Base for 'Mission' groups in years 7-9 with the Key Stage 3 Manager or a part time specialist Dyslexia Teacher.

In Key Stage 4 some students are given the opportunity to opt for a tailored vocational programme which includes the opportunity to study an NVQ qualification at our local College of Further Education and undertake regular work experience, as well as completing five GCSE subjects in school. In addition, our Key Stage 4 Support Base is always open for extra "back up" for students seeking coursework guidance. This area of our curriculum is rapidly expanding, giving some of our students with SEN the flexible options that they need.

Our Behaviour Support Base concentrates mainly on students with Emotional and Behavioural difficulties, but also provides for those who need a personal approach to re-integration to school following time out of education or fixed term exclusions. It is open from 7.30 every morning for a "Breakfast Club",at break and lunch times and holds groups for students who need help with similar emotional difficulties.

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.
