Special Education Needs
Driffield School has always been held in very high regard for our inclusive approach to education. There are many examples of excellent practice of student support across the whole curriculum. However, we are not complacent, we continue to respond to the changing needs of young people and to evaluate our practice in line with government strategy. The launch of a Student Services Team has allowed a 'joined up' multi-agency approach to issues that occur in the classroom. We strive to remove all barriers to learning by identifying children's needs early and providing effective support and intervention. Student Services consists of a team of highly qualified, motivated and enthusiastic teachers and teaching assistants with a diverse range of experience. Support is provided for all student needs, ranging from learning social, communication, emotional, behavioural and physical difficulties, as well as English as an Additional Language.
