Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Our SEN team supports a wide range of SEN, including specific learning difficulties, moderate learning difficulties, ADHD and ASD. We are an inclusive school and our SEN provision is integrated into our teaching and learning, assessment and pastoral systems. Withdrawal from lessons is minimised in response to feedback from the students who prefer to remain alongside their peers. The SEN team is led by an experienced and qualified SENCO, Miss Weekes.

We have established positive working relationships with a wide range of agencies including the Community Paediatricians, the EP Service, the ASD Specialist Team, the Speech and Language Service, Social Care and CAMHS. Many of our students are supported through the ‘Team around the Family’ process.

We will work closely with your child to ensure that they are listened to and involved in planning their support. Teaching staff will involve your child in discussing their needs and support strategies for lessons. We also use person-centred planning and approaches to encourage students to have a ‘voice’ in their learning and develop their aspirations.

For more information, all of the SEN key documents are below, or you can contact our Associate Assistant Headteacher/SENCO, Miss Weekes, at the school on 0151 652 1574.
