Special Education Needs
All staff have a responsibility to ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential. Specific support is coordinated by the Director of Inclusion. The SEND team work collaboratively with departments in order to devise strategies and appropriate methods to enable access to the curriculum. A cycle of observation, feedback and sharing of good practice is also in place. Staff can also access information on a wide range of SEND issues such as cognition and learning, social interaction, social emotional and mental health and physical disability needs through the individual mapping programme. Curriculum support for students with SEND includes: individual student’s needs being identified, assessed and monitored; effective communication of the needs of individual students to all staff; an appropriate curriculum being delivered through the provision of suitable teaching materials, differentiated teaching strategies, supportive learning environments and a focus on developing a positive self- image; involvement of outside agencies where necessary and appropriate; ensuring that parents are fully involved and aware of the provision made for their child/young person; students with SEND encouraged to actively participate in all decision making processes - they contribute to the assessment of their needs and attend all meetings; and regular reporting of SEND issues to the leadership team/school governors to raise awareness and ensure the effective implementation of processes and procedures. Provision from within the school’s resources is identified to help meet the student’s needs such as: identifying appropriate teaching groups/ sets; additional learning programmes for literacy/ speech and language and communication needs/ social skills / numeracy; smaller group sessions; mentoring/keyworker.
