Special Education Needs
We have about 65 pupils here at Stonyhurst who have SEN. The majority have mainly various degrees of Dyslexia. A few are Dyspraxic, a couple have Asperger's and most of them cope very well in normal classes and take a range of GCSE subjects. They are "setted" in some areas, not in others, and the sets are relatively small; some have as few as 5 pupils. "Curriculum support" is delivered through small groups of pupils who usually drop one or more subjects and have lessons with the SENCO instead. If their English is weak, then they are put in her set for that subject too. They all take English Language and Literature GCSE and most of them gain B or C grades. If they are particularly intelligent and can cope in higher sets then they are encouraged to do so and they are just monitored by the SENCO. We have some in-class support but only from our Gap Students. We have no "statemented" pupils at the present time as all our pupils are assessed privately. Nov 09
