Special Education Needs

Inclusion is high on our agenda. We have a deputy head in overall charge supported by a SENCO who leads a team of teachers and classroom assistants. There is an in-house behaviour support unit, learning mentor in each year in main school and a youth service based in school. Support is individualised but there are also groups such as an xl club and a garden group. ASDAN awards are offered as well as qualifications in literacy and numeracy. Provision extends to adults through the Gatehouse, a basic skills and open learning centre. THe Hexham Partnership has a leading aspect award for training of classroom assistants. 10-09
