Special Education Needs
The School has a full-time SENCO who works with staff in the juniors on the Early Intervention Programme as well as working one-to-one with older boys who have diagnosed needs such as dyslexia or dyspraxia. The SENCO and Head of Personalised Learning ensure that teachers in the seniors (where boys have several subject specialist teachers) are trained and updated on boys' individual needs. These boys are given Personalised Learning Plans which are shared with parents, staff and boys. Dec 09.
