Special Education Needs
SEN provision is given by a specialist SEN co-ordinator who has close links with all subject departments. Children with SEN attend support lessons in the unit, which is located in the main teaching block, at times and frequencies that meet their individual needs. All teaching staff have full details of the children with SEN, together with strategies that help with each individual in the classroom situation. The main aim is to maximise the learning potential of each individual so that they achieve the highest academic standards of which they are capable. 09-09
