Special Education Needs
Most children's needs can be met within the classroom through differentiated tasks and provision, particularly in the early stages. All children are taught in mixed ability classes apart from maths and spelling in which they are set or grouped according to their levels of achievement in the Prep Department. According to pupil needs, individual or group lessons may be offered with specialist teachers in the Learning Support Department. The SENCO manages this experienced team which offers advice, support, training and teaching within the school. The focus of the department is on early identification and positive intervention with regard to some specific learning needs and to offer a 'boost' to English skills if indicated.
