Special Education Needs
Barking Abbey School maintains a register of any pupil presenting with special educational needs. This allows the school to monitor the support and progress of the identified pupils. Small classes have been set up, at K.S.3, in English, Maths, History, R.E. and Geography to allow for the curriculum to be made accessible and literacy skills to be developed. In-class support is provided, by a team of nine support assistants, in many science and technology areas so that pupils can make the best progress possible. Socially S.E.N. students are well supported by the Mentoring Team and the Learning Support Units. If pupils require anger management or lack self-esteem they can join a social skills class that runs once a week throughout the year. Reviews are held at least twice a year for those pupils named on the register. These would involve pupils, parents, mentors and any outside agency that might be involved. At the reviews the targets from the pupil's Individual Education Plan will be looked at and new targets set.
