Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

The SEN list is actively monitored and adjusted to meet the needs of all students. Statemented students are fully supported as dictated by the specificity of the statement of educational need. The Learning Support department works hard to meet the needs of school action and school action plus students by use of teaching assistants in the classroom, in small groups and on a 1:1 basis. Individual education plans are drawn up for all students on the list and regularly reviewed by all partners. Parental contact and involvement is a vital part of this. The department deals with and has experience of all types of learning difficulty within a well resourced and appropriately qualified team. Outside agencies are involved with specific students as required. The recent OFSTED inspection graded the support provided for students within the school as outstanding.

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.
