Special Education Needs
Students of all abilities are regarded as equals and should participate and derive benefit from mainstream classroom experiences. However it is paramount to meet the Special Educational Needs (SEN) of individual students. Support is mainly in-class and students with SEN are the responsibility of all teachers.
