Special Education Needs

Cheam caters for children with certain special needs. There is a thriving Learning Support Department on site which assists children with mild forms of dyslexia and dyspraxia. The staff are very experienced and fully attuned to the needs of the children. Detailed and accurate profiles are kept up to date and such information shared with the staff. There is effective communication between the LS Department and the teaching staff thus ensuring that each child's specific needs are met. Children can be screened in house and, if required, tested at school by an educational psychologist. Bright and gifted children are also well catered for and can fast track through the school into the scholarship streams in the final two years. Pupils are streamed from Year 4 upwards. Bright and gifted pupils are prepared for scholarship exams to their public schools in small, 'stand alone' scholarship forms in Years 7 and 8.
