Special Education Needs
The Student Support Department, led by the SENCo, is made up of 6 LSAs, 1 Youth Mentor and an Inclusion Unit Manager. The LEA's Learning Support Services have regular involvement in school. The school supports a variety of SEN, including some youngsters with physical disabilities; a lift is due to be installed at half-term (October 2005). The Student Support Team works across the whole school, supporting students in-class and in small groups, when additional help is needed. The use of 'Successmaker' - an integrated learning program which develops students' literacy and numeracy skills - is widely used in Years 7 and 8. The team has a wealth of experience, with Support Staff coming from a variety of backgrounds. A Counselling Service is available, as well as alternative curriculum packages for selected students in Years 10 and 11. The Inclusion Unit is central to the school and exists to support students whose behaviour may, on occasions, be more challenging.
