Special Education Needs

At Washington School we have a variety of ways of meeting children's special educational needs. For those with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), we offer Curriculum Access Provision, currently staffed by four specialist SEN teachers and 9 support assistants. This provision covers English and maths from Year 7 up to Year 11 for those children who need it, in additon to other subjects where it is felt that children are unable to integrate with mainstream classes. In KS4, children follow public exam courses to gain them the best possible qualifications, appropriate to their strengths and needs. Wherever possible, CAP children have lessons in mainstream classes with appropriate support. We also offer in-class support to children who don't need CAP specialist teaching. Our teaching staff are all fully qualified and as well as teaching in CAP, teach mainstream children in a variety of subjects. Our support staff have specialisms in dyslexia, speech and language difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders and we run regular extra classes and lunchtime activities for basic skills.
