Special Education Needs
Wycliffe College is a CReSTeD accredited school (category DU), with a highly regarded Learning Support Department, delivering specialist support to dyslexic and dyspraxic students on an individual or small group basis. The Learning Support Department is located at the heart of the College's Advanced Learning Centre, with a suite of four rooms for individual and group tuition. The Department is well resourced, with a wide range of teaching materials and textbooks, as well as networked ICT facilities and specialist software. SEN at Wycliffe is very much a whole school issue. Our experience shows that students with dyslexia can and will achieve, if taught according to their learning preferences and strengths. The Learning Support Department aims to enable students to develop their skills to a secure level in order to emerge as confident, independent learners with a high sense of self-worth. To ensure this, we have set in place clear procedures to identify students with SpLDs - including dyslexia - at the earliest possible stage in their education, and to distribute detailed information and advice which informs all teaching of these pupils. Whilst some students need additional learning support within the department, others achieve with differentiation within the classroom. Close and continuous monitoring ensures that their needs are met. Staff are very aware of the needs of dyslexic pupils and are responsive to SEN advice. Staff consult the SEN Department very frequently, to ensure the students’ needs are met. Good use is made of SEN information in the planning of the curriculum, which has been adapted specifically to meet the needs of SEN pupils, for example in science, English and modern languages. Departmental Schemes of Work all include a Differentiation Policy. Although our main provision is for students with mild to moderate dyslexia and mild dyspraxia, we have supported children with mild Asperger's syndrome and one partially paralysed student. We have also provided for students with mild tic syndromes and epilepsy. Our SEN admission policy is to consider the needs of each child on an individual basis, and following this, determine whether the College can meet that child's needs, without prejudice to the needs of others.
