Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

Students with special educational needs are particularly welcome in our school. A team of specialist teachers and support assistants provides additional help to students with a variety of needs. We support in class and also withdraw students for additional help. In addition to a 'Support' option in Years 10 and 11, we offer vocational subjects which are accessible to all our students. Among our current students are those with learning, behavioural, physical, emotional and medical needs.

We liaise closely with our feeder middle schools and external agencies and have a thriving 'Student Support' team within school. This has evolved through our role as an extended school and we are able to involve a variety of professionals to support our work with young people in school.

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.
