Special Education Needs

SEN provision at Kilgraston concentrates on meeting the needs of pupils with specific learning difficulties and includes individual lessons, class support and parent/teacher consultations. Kilgraston is the only school in Scotland to have been included in CReSTeD’s list for 2024/25 of recommended schools for pupils with additional support needs. CReSTeD carried out a rigorous on-site assessment of our teaching and monitoring practices and stated, in a glowing report, that we offer our pupils a ‘tailored and bespoke curriculum’ where ‘each pupil has their needs met individually’. The awarding body also commended the ‘highly knowledgeable and experienced’ staff in the department of academic support who ‘confidently and deftly’ meet the needs of pupils across the curriculum. The department of academic support plans to build on this success through regular meetings with a working group of parents, with the aim of taking a collaborative approach to continuing to enhance the excellent support that is given to all additional support pupils.
