Special Education Needs
Although this is a grammar school several of our students need the help of the Learning Support Department at different times of their schooling. All these students are supported and counselled by staff with the help of the County Council’s educational psychologists and specialist advisors as appropriate. We have one student with a statement of Special Educational Needs. All in-coming students are monitored by speaking to staff in their primary schools, reading all the transfer documentation, collating KS2 results and reviewing the results of their Richmond Assessments. Richmond assessments and CATs testing takes place in the first week of the Autumn term in Year 7. Students who we feel would benefit from extra help with spelling, reading comprehension, mathematics or handwriting are given support at lunchtimes either by a mentor or by a member of staff. As a result of the introduction of the Key Stage 3 National Strategy, if any student were to enter the school having not achieved a level 4 or above in English and Maths, they would be expected to attend extra lunchtime sessions to help them catch up. During Year 7 some students are gradually identified as being gifted. Identification is by means of primary recommendation, exam results and staff referral. This small number of students are given the chance to join the group which aims to meet four times a year for an afternoon or morning of enrichment activities.
