Special Education Needs

We are an inclusive school, where SEN pupils make good progress academically, and are involved fully in the extra-curricular and pastoral aspects of school life. We have an extremely successful year 6 to year 7 transition programme to ensure a smooth transfer for statemented and SA+ students and screen all year 7 girls putting appropriate strategies in place. We carefully assess and monitor all the students who are on our SEN register, making sure that we provide help that will allow them to progress academically. We also ensure that students' needs and targets are communicated to all staff and that teachers receive appropriate training in different special needs. We run various small groups that focus on literacy, numeracy and social skills and there are social skills clubs for Years 7 - 9 every lunchtime. We also offer a well staffed homework club for all SEN students from Years 7 - 13, five nights a week. We offer all possible support for GCSE and A Level exams: use of laptops, extra time provision and small rooms for the exams. We have developed specialisms in various areas of SEN provision including speech, language and communication needs, autistic spectrum disorders and Down syndrome. Dec 09.
