Special Education Needs
The philosophy of the department is for inclusion to provide support across the whole curriculum for any student who has special educational needs, either on a long term or temporary basis. We aim to support students within the classroom where/when possible. Some small group or individual withdrawal is offered to those students for whom an additional teaching programme is preferable. Each member of the Learning Support Team is fully trained according to DCSF standards for Teaching Assistants; additionally, individual members have further specialisms in supporting students on the Autistic Spectrum; with Down's Syndrome; with brain damage; with dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD; with speech and language difficulties and in manual handling techniques for physically disabled students. Several members of the team have counselling skills and regularly see students with emotional difficulties. There are links with designated agencies for hearing impaired and visually impaired students, for looked after children, the Traveller Education Service and the English as an Additional Language Service.
