Special Education Needs

The SEN department has progressed greatly in the last few years and now has three members of staff: one full time SENCO and two subject teachers who do a part timetable in Learning Support. Our aim is to enable our pupils with learning difficulties to achieve their full potential whatever that might be. Boys needing support are withdrawn on a rota basis depending on need. This can be short-term or throughout their time at the school. Support sessions may take the form of specific specialist dyslexic teaching or revision and study skills to support access to the curriculum. The department has a high profile within the school with an open-door policy for any boy who needs support. 10-09
