Special Education Needs
We offer support across the curriculum for pupils with SEN. We have pupils who have MLD, Spld, EBD, hearing and visual impairment, autistic spectrum and communication difficulties. Teaching assistants provide in-class support, small group work and deliver COPE at KS4. There is a SENCO who implements the requirements of the code of practice as well as teaching and tutoring these students. There are training courses delivered to all staff concerning many aspects of SEN. We have 3 mentors who provide support for a wide range of children in difficulty or G+T. All agencies are employed in as many ways as possible to harness the best resources and support we can possibly give.
