Special Education Needs
The Causeway School is co-located with Hazel Court Special School. It first opened its door to students in September 2000. It has modern facilities and shares its canteen, library and school hall with the students from Hazel Court. The co-location has brought benefits for students in both schools, with students having the opportunities to share their learning and take part in joint creative projects, including a week in Spain in year seven. Spanish is the modern foreign language taught at the school. The school operates an inclusive policy and aims to meet the individual needs of all its students. In September 2005 the school adopted a 'pathways' curriculum which provides extra support for students working below or towards recommended National Curriculum levels. It enables a more varied curriculum for selected students at KS4 that includes work experience and increased flexiblity courses at the local further education colleges, whilst still studying at school to achieve GCSE's in core subjects. The school has an inclusion unit that provides support for both learning and behavioural difficulties. SEN support at the school is delivered through a differentiated curriculum, in-class support, 1:1 and group withdrawal from lessons to attend specific programmes and mentoring. Students with statements are supported in lessons by teaching assistants, ranging from full-time support to specifical targeted support depending on need.
