Special Education Needs
The Skills Development Unit offers support to those pupils with specific learning difficulties. Its primary objectives are to help all pupils with a specific need to access the curriculum most effectively, to fulfil their potential and to experience success, thus enhancing their self-esteem. The primary priciples are to: - Promote a consistency of approach to meeting pupils' special educational needs - To place the pupil at the heart of the process, allowing them to be heard and to take part in decisions about their education. - To work in partnership with parents and to understand that they have unique strengths, knowledge and experience to contribute to the shared view of a pupil's needs and the best ways of supporting them.
