Special Education Needs

All pupils are screened on entry to the school to establish their academic profile. Those pupils who are identified as having special educational needs - whether gifted and talented or in need of extra support - are given an Individual Education Plan. This IEP is created in consultation with parents and is reviewed every 6 - 12 months. The school offers specialist dyslexia support given in the form of one to one lessons. In addition the school has teaching assistants and a learning support assistant who offer lessons in small groups. The school has experience of pupils with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's syndrome and non-verbal reasoning difficulties. The school has also educated pupils with statemented needs.
