Special Education Needs
The school is sympathetic to pupils with specific learning difficulties and there is a small Special Needs Department that provides support for a range of learning difficulties. The Department aims to help students to become effective learners, while ensuring that awareness of special needs is regularly reviewed so that teachers can meet students' needs across the curriculum. Students are intially identified through prep/primary liaison, screening tests and referrals by subject teachers and concerns expressed by parents. Following further investigation a programme of support is put into action ranging from differentiation within the classroom, to small group-work and 1-1 tuition with a specialist teacher. Progress is monitored and review sessions organised with pupils, staff and parents where appropriate. For further information you are welcome to contact the Special Needs Coordinator on 01256 860257
