Thank the school

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs
Wennington Hall is a school where education is regarded as the foundation stone for each pupil’s future, individuals are valued for themselves and where all are expected to give their best. We believe in equality and in the equality of opportunity for all children. Wennington Hall caters, on a residential or day basis, for the needs of 70 boys of secondary age who have difficulties associated with their academic, social, emotional, and/or behavioural development. Pupils come to our school when they have been referred through one of the Lancashire Area Education Offices/SEN Assessment and Psychology Managers because it is felt, that mainstream education is inappropriate for them. We believe all children have basic rights of individuality, respect and dignity. As with any school, our chief aim is the education of the pupils in our charge, but education in a positive, secure and caring environment. The needs of the individual are paramount and, thanks to a generous pupil/teacher ratio, can be planned and catered for. Class sizes vary from 4 to 8. Each class has a qualified teacher with special needs experience and most classes also have a Special School Assistant. It is therefore possible to offer pupils more individual attention than could normally be afforded in a mainstream school and to provide programmes of study tailored to meet the particular needs of the individual. The Special School Assistants also operate a One-to-One Programme where extra help can be given for pupils to develop literacy and numeracy.
