SEN Statement

We encourage all pupils with SEN to fulfil their potential here at school. We encourage students to play to their strengths and to develop their talents. We provide in class support with qualified TAs to assist pupils. We also extract pupils with literacy difficulties for work on our ARROW and WORDSHARK programmes. We have Maths Intervention classes to help those who find maths challenging. We run numerous programmes to help children manage their anger and to develop social skills. Children who benefit from the use of a lap top are provided with an Alphasmart machine for use in key lessons.

In September 2005 we are opeing our state of the art ilearn centre which will cater for those who need an individual learning programme specially developed to meet their individual needs.

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.
