Special Education Needs
As a school, we strive to meet the rights and duties introduced by the SEN and Disabilities Act of 2001 and we actively pursue an approach based on 'inclusion'. This approach seeks to provide an education for all of our students, irrespective of their ability, physical and/or sensory impairment, emotional or behavioural difficulties, which is relevant to their needs. We encourage the fullest possible participation of all our students in the spiritual, educational and social life of the school. The Special Needs Department is composed of four teams of specialists who work together to meet the needs of pupils in the best possible way. These are The Learning Support Team supporting pupils with Learning difficulties; The Enhanced Resource Base Team supporting students with sight and physical difficulties; the Supported Study Room Team supporting students experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties and The Emeral Club Team who offer a nurturing environment to students in years 7 and 8.
