Special Education Needs

The School normally screens all pupils in their first term at the school. If extra learning support is thought to be necessary it is arranged and paid for by parents. Learning support tuition mostly takes place outside school hours, and pupils are not normally withdrawn from timetabled lessons for this purpose. If the school considers that further assessment is needed, a referral may be made to an outside agency, such as an educational psychologist. The costs of any such assessment are paid by the parents. A member of staff has the role of Head of Learning Support, organises the screening process and liaises with the Heads of Section and teachers. 10-09
