Special Education Needs
We aim to be as inclusive as possible to a wide range of children, including those who are gifted (e.g. very able academically) and /or talented (e.g. with particular musical flair). Our 'Increasing Access' policy includes a commitment to gradual, realistic changes that will allow us to welcome an increasingly diverse cross-section of pupils. Currently, our main provision is for children with mild to moderate learning needs. A qualified learning support specialist works with teachers to help them adjust their learning and teaching techniques to meet the needs of all pupils. Those children who benefit are withdrawn from some lessons for individual support from the Learning Support co-ordinator.
