Thank the school

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs
The school has an established reputation for the quality and consistency of its Special Needs provision, for mainstream and Language Unit children. A full-time mainstream Special Needs Co-ordinator organises and monitors support for children on entry and regular assessment ensures that intervention is timely and consistent with a child's needs. The Language Unit accommodates 26 children with Statements of Special Need aged between 5 and 11, the children are grouped into three classes, taught by teachers with specific qualifications and expertise and supported within mainstream classes when integrating with mainstream pupils. We operate a system of "exchange integration" where mainstream children are taught in the Unit classes for certain lessons by Unit staff. This arrangement benefits mainstream children for whom smaller teaching groups and more individual attention is appropriate. There are regular, on-site, qualified Speech Therapists, seconded to the school from the local Health Authority, who work with Unit children and some mainstream pupils during the each school day.
