Special Education Needs

At Finham Park, students with special educational needs are taught largely in mainstream classes and are encouraged to participate fully in the whole-school curriculum. Additional support, however, is provided through the Supportive Studies Department, and this can take various forms. Some students are supported in mainstream classes by our team of Teaching Assistants, whose main role is to help students access the curriculum and to encourage and assist them with their work and behaviour. In addition to this, small group and individual support lessons are set up for those students who who have high levels of specific learning needs, such as low level literacy skills. The school works closely with external support agencies to provide specialist support for conditions such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder or sensory impairment, and this can take the form of both direct intervention with students, as well as training and advice for the staff. The school follows the guidelines set out in the Code of Practice, whereby all students with special educational needs are recorded in our SEN register which is used to communicate individual student's needs to teachers and is up-dated on a termly basis. Students' progress is monitored closely and communicated regularly to parents and carers. The school has a policy of SEN which is available to parents on request.
