Special Education Needs
All pupils are screened on arrival and may be added to a register of those requiring special attention from subject teachers, who will receive detailed advice on how they can help pupils appropriately in class. If necessary pupils are withdrawn from a lesson weekly to have a special class with the SEN teacher, either individually or in a pair/small group. Pupils are allowed to use laptop computers should this be deemed necessary by an educational psychologist. 09-09
