What the Good Schools Guide says...

This school proudly wears its Catholic heart on its sleeve – but it’s a big and inclusive heart. Everyone, nay everyone we spoke to mentioned the strong family atmosphere and the forces for good which prevail in the school, which embraces the handful of non-Catholics who attend and where ‘bullying is jumped on’. A sense of religious observance was palpable, and pupils accept...

Special Education Needs

It is recognised that all pupils have needs which are special to them; the curriculum provided is broad, balanced, relevant, differentiated, challenging and stimulating thus raising the standards achieved by all. Pupils who are particularly talented or gifted are identified early and staff are encouraged to match how and what they teach to the needs of the pupil. Using National Curriculum SATs, NFER CATS and other sources of information received, including from the junior schools, the Learning Support Manager identifies those who may need extra help. The nature of their needs is assessed and direction is given on how best to meet these needs. Support, resources and in school training are made available to staff in order to ensure that all pupils are given equal access to the curriculum. Text books, materials and other resources are carefully selected by all Curriculum leaders to be suitable and stimulating. Pupils are taught in mixed ability groups for some subjects and setted for particular subjects. Consideration is made for those with special educational needs; the numbers of pupils in some classes will reflect their need for more individual guidance. Additional in-class support will be available in some lessons. The post of Learning Support Manager (formerly SENCo), is a non-teaching colleague who therefore has more time to devote to meeting parents, annual reviews and 1:1 work with children. She works closely with all faculties to ensure that pupils receive the attention they require. For all National Curriculum subjects the syllabus on offer is common for all pupils, regardless of ability. The pace of work, sophistication of skills taught and the level of the content covered will reflect the pace at which the pupils can work. Teachers' expectations remain extremely high; pupils are encouraged to set for themselves realistic goals and to make every effort to achieve these as they mature and become more independent.
