What The Good Schools Guide says

Acting Headteacher

Since 2022, Mrs Sotiria Vlahodimou, BSc MSc PGDip PGCE NaSENco NPQH. Following a degree in medical microbiology at the University of Surrey, and a career in paediatric vaccines, Mrs Vlahodimou was motivated to enter teaching by her own dispiriting experiences of education - she was told she was not academic enough, just good at languages! She took her teaching certificate at the university of Chichester and started at a special school in West Sussex, becoming SENco. In 2016, she joined Slindon College, first as assistant then full SENco, taking a dyslexia teaching qualification and NPQH on the way.

Special Education Needs

We are a centre of excellence for moderate but complex specific learning difficulties including AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's Syndrome (mild) and others that may overlap. Slindon is also a haven for less able or vulnerable pupils who will not thrive in large classes. We have a warm and friendly atmosphere. The school adopts a holistic approach to learning support. Small classes with experienced teachers and a large team of classroom assistants are further supported by ICT, a dyslexia unit, dietary measures, Bowen therapy and medication. Special needs planning is present at every level. Individual education planning goes beyond the classroom and is truly unique. Every pupil is fully included, enabled, valued and encouraged.
