What the Good Schools Guide says...

Deservedly popular commuter-belt comprehensive turned academy, with big ideas and an eye on the wider world. Overseas trips limited, as not everyone can afford to go, but video conferences with an imaginative range of partners (from astronauts to school children in Afghanistan) help make up for it. First in the region to offer...

Special Education Needs

The Ridings' Federatiom Winterbourne Interntional Academy has a commitment to inclusion via its "achieving success through motivation, knowledge and skills" theme. To ensure each student achieves their potential, the Academy actively seeks to overcome any barriers to learning that may exist for individual students. In support of this, the Academy has developed a Learning Support Base and a Behaviour for Learning Centre (B4LC), which helps students who would otherwise be excluded, be reintegrated into the classroom. Given our diverse student population, the Academy's support procedures are broad, flexible and comprehensive and offer our students every opportunity to progress. Within the Student Support Procedures framework lies an assessment and screening process which underpins the whole process. We have found through experience that those students who are not performing at a secure Level 4 or above in English are more likely to fall into a cycle of frustration, loss of self-confidence and sometimes, academic performance below their actual level of ability. Our aim is to access all students in Year 7, to screen for those who may have specific learning difficulties which we have not been informed about, and to identify those students who we feel may fall behind as the demands of secondary education cause them to fall into the cycle of disaffection and under achievement. The aim of the whole assessment process is three-fold: 1) to gather as much information as possible about educational attainment to date and to obtain an indication of underlying ability or potential; 2) to identify, using diagnostic tests, specific problems to pinpoint where problems lie, to give an indication of the type of support, if any, that will be necessary; and 3) to determine whether further assessment by an Educational Psychologist or the Specialist Learning Support Co-ordinator within the Academy is indicated.
