SEND Vision and Ethos

It is our belief that all students should be catered for according to their individual needs.

We are a fully inclusive school and pride ourselves on providing personalised provision for all students and recognise the importance to assess, identify and support students with SEND.

All staff are passionate about differentiating learning to ensure the needs of all students are met during lessons and where additional provision is required, our dedicated Learning Support team offer extra support. Our experienced Teaching Assistants (TAs) work with students both in and outside the classroom to aid students’ learning, give guidance and support students throughout their school experience.

A large proportion of intervention takes the form of specific, small class-sized Learning Support lessons, supported with targeted Literacy and Numeracy intervention led by subject specific teachers.

Students in KS3 are supported in a number of ways, including:

  • In class support in lessons
  • Working in small groups to improve basic literacy skills
  • Lunchtime and after school club to support with homework
  • Shared reading with older students acting as reading buddies
  • Intervention to support with spelling

Students in KS4 are supported in a number of ways, including:

  • In class support in lessons
  • Support during study periods
  • Lunchtime and after school club to support with homework
  • Personalised curriculum where necessary
  • Assessing and arranging suitable examination access arrangements

We work closely with external professionals and are strongly committed to ongoing communication with students and parents / carers and staff to ensure that all students achieve their full potential and enjoy their learning.

Achieve. Enjoy. Excel.
