Special Education Needs

Matthew Holland School is fully inclusive and provides good support for pupils with special needs (OFSTED May 2004). We believe that all pupils should be supported in appropriate ways to enable them to have access to a broad, balanced curriculum. This may be through withdrawal for some lessons with support outside the classroom, or through support within the main curriculum. We have an excellent Learning Support Unit where a variety of activities take place. Within the Learning Support Unit, there is small group teaching for pupils in years 7-9, one-to-one coaching for pupils with specific individual needs, behaviour modification programs, work on social skills and speech and language. A range of extra curricular activities take place designed to motivate pupils and raise self-esteem. In years 8 and 9, we have some alternative curriculum in small groups. This takes place within the Learning Support Unit. The ASDAN Life skills course is run in years 10 and 11 and there is a group of students who take part in the Schools’ Link programme at West Notts College. There is a strong emphasis on supporting students to gain effective literacy skills through additional work on reading, support and specific teaching for Dyslexic students and opportunities to work within small groups for some English tasks. Care is taken to ensure the curriculum is tailored to the needs of our learners and this is constantly reviewed. Support is given to some pupils at lunch and break times. This may include access to games, support for homework or just a quiet space.
