Special Education Needs

We have a Unit for students who are visually impaired. The Learning Support offices/rooms provide an opportunity to withdraw students from lessons for additional help with Literacy/Numeracy and curriculum support at KS4. Those students with special needs are supported by materials in class and by Teaching Assistants in lessons. We are committed to providing premises that are suitable and sufficient for educational purpose and provide access to a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils, irrespective of special need or disability. The School’s Governing Body supports the principles and aims of the LEA’s Access Strategy for Schools and will work jointly with the LEA to implement agreed objectives to meet the County’s targets for improving access to schools where practical.
