Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

A fully trained team of teachers is on hand to provide support for students with learning difficulties to ensure that all children are supported and challenged to fulfil their maximum potential.
The team liaise closely with outside agencies, parents and subject teachers to ensure that the most effective means of providing support are available. In some cases this may mean liaising with educational psychologists. A trained teaching assistant is assigned to most subject areas; this ensures that students receive the care and attention they require to maximise their learning potential and this additional in-class support can provide further opportunities for individual and small group in support of classroom teachers.

The core purpose of our Student Support Service is to promote the successful inclusion of all students with additional educational needs.

We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students what ever their needs or abilities. We value the contribution that every child can make and welcome the diversity of culture, religion and intellectual style. We seek to raise achievement of the whole community and remove barriers to learning. As such one of the most important initiatives for this department is ensuring that AEN is a matter for the school as a whole. All teachers need to become teachers of students with SEN. We want to ensure that our department is integral in helping staff work with youngsters within main stream, where ever possible, rather than use the service as a way of removing students from main stream education.

The Student Support Service is at a very exciting point of transition. In the past students with special educational needs or, as we like to call them, additional educational needs, were supported by one team and students with educational behavioural needs were supported by another team. We have taken a far more holistic approach for the student, and have appointed a KS3 student support co-ordinator and a KS4 student support co-coordinator. Our aim is to develop two suitably qualified teams that will have the skills and expertise to identify and address the needs of the individuals at a particular Key Stage. In addition our colleagues have the confidence, ability and willingness to work with members of staff in their class room and help them become confident and competent in teaching youngsters with additional educational needs within the classroom. We do recognise that in meeting the individual needs of some students specialist programmes are a necessary requirement.

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.
