Special Education Needs

Students are identified for SEN on entry to the school through their entrance exam, CATs tests and primary school information. Staff do regular reviews and inform the SENCO as necessary. The monitoring is specific to the learning and teaching of students with SEN. Students identified with SEN have IEPs and meet regularly with the Year Leader. Any teaching assistants within the school provide excellent support for the students. The school works well with outside agencies. Subject staff meet regularly and are updated on the specific needs of the students they are teaching. Nov 09
