Special Education Needs
South Hampstead aims to ensure that all children who are accepted into the school receive a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, regardless of any disability or personal and educational difficulties they encounter. The Senior School has a Learning Needs Co-ordinator. Every member of staff is made aware of pupils' educational needs and difficulties. A variety of teaching methods are employed with these in mind. However, the school is not resourced to offer specialist assessment nor specialist teaching to girls with special educational needs. Nov 09.
