Special Education Needs

Children whose special learning or behavioural needs have already been identified prior to entry into the school will receive the appropriate support and help required. Staff are informed of the particular needs of students and the implementation of strategies is monitored. The development and progress of all students is monitored and if special needs are identified then action is initiated either within the school or by using outside agencies or both. The school systems are consistent with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice and the school is committed to an inclusive curriculum for all students on roll. The School Guidance Counsellor is responsible for monitoring and supporting students with special needs. Parents are involved in discussions about the most appropriate strategies to support students who have special needs. The Governors' Pupils Standing Committee monitors the provision for special educational needs in the school. Our OFSTED Inspection Report January 2005 said: ‘There is very good provision for students with Special Educational Needs. Teachers receive training in strategies to use in support of specific needs. In lessons teachers are fully aware of students' special needs and provide very good support' and added 'Curricular provision for students who have special educational needs is very good. They follow the same curriculum as all other students and are fully included in all aspects of school life.'
