What the Good Schools Guide says...

In place of a motto has a rather gnomic phrase beneath its name: ‘More than a visible curriculum’. It may not be catchy but the key words here are ‘more than’ - the head is determined to grasp every opportunity that’s going to broaden and widen the educational experience of local children. Not culturally diverse and the head feels that the award of International School is particularly important - trips abroad are made available to pupils who wouldn’t normally get such opportunities...

Special Education Needs

Cirencester Deer Park School provides a range of provision for pupils with special educational needs. We are a high achieving school and our value added work is testament to this. However our intake profile shows that on entry to the school we have a fully comprehensive population covering a range of abilities. The provision for SEN falls broadly into two categories: Learning Support and Inclusion Support. These fall under the responsibility of the Deputy Head: Pupil Services who is also responsible for the pastoral teams - Heads of Year, tutors etc. Learning Support: this area provides support for pupils with specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia), general learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders, dyspraxia, etc. Our provision ranges from in-class support to withdrawal for targeted small groups. We have a LIFT (Learning in the Fast Track) programme in KS3 which gives an intensive literacy input to targeted pupils which is very successful. We offer alternative curriculum pathways to pupils at Key Stage 4 in order to match their learning needs. Inclusion Support: this area provides support for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and involves intensive work, usually on a one to one basis with specialist staff who can offer counselling, behaviour modification, anger management and work on self awareness. The two areas are not mutually exclusive and work together, often with outside agencies, to ensure good provision for all pupils with special and differing needs at Deer Park. Nov 09.
