Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

While some boys will have their needs identified before they join the school, our SEN department has assessment procedures in place to ensure the quick and effective support of all pupils who may require some assistance.

Students throughout Key Stage 3 (years 7, 8 and 9) and Key Stage 4 (years 10 and 11) may need extra support in the classroom and for this we have a strong team of teaching assistants who can support your child throughout their education, both in the classroom and in our SEN department.

At Portchester we view SEN as a whole school issue and work closely with the LEA to ensure the best advice and support is given at all times. Any specific assessment advice is passed to the relevant Class Tutor to enable them to use this information to enhance their teaching of individual pupils.

The school has a fast developing Learning Support Centre and teachers with responsibilities for SEN provision. It also boasts a behavioural unit where specific support can be given to those pupils who find it difficult to cope within a mainstream setting. Much support is offered in this area including anger management and ‘problem solving skills’.

The school follows the SEN code of Practice. In the initial SEN stages, all support is provided by our own teachers and support staff. However, if a student has a written Statement of Special Educational Needs, the school will work in tandem with the Local Education Authority’s specialist staff to ensure all the relevant provision requirement is met.

The school works together with the parents when assessing provision for a student with Special Needs and this partnership continues when issues or concerns arise. We also ensure this partnership extends to the contact with parents and the LEA for those pupils who have a Statement for Special Educational Needs or behaviour.

The schools SEN Policy is available from the school by written request.

If you do wish to speak to anyone regarding SEN, please feel free to phone the school, we are always happy to help and support you with all your enquiries.

English as an Additional Language

Portchester has very strong links with the LEA’s ‘English as an Additional Language’ team (EAL) and is able to support pupils with this need.

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.
