Special Education Needs
Pupils with special needs come from a wide range of backgrounds and their needs are usually catered for within their own classes. Extra support is provided by teachers on an indivdual basis where required. These sessions are normally timetabled to coincide with one of the daily sports sessions. Pupils' needs are managed by the school's Manager of Special Educational Needs. Pupils who need short term support in EAL attend small groups (4-6 pupils) during one of the daily PE slots or second modern language class. 10-09
