Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Special Education Needs and Disabilities

Our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is

Mrs J Duncan

Special Educational Needs - We do not discriminate against pupils who have a disability or special need.
Our priority is to meet the needs of all pupils including those pupils with any kind of Education Health Care Plan (EHC); to identify all pupils with any kind of learning need and to provide teaching and resources to address
those needs.

Pupils having difficulties are identified by their teachers, their parents or themselves. When it becomes clear that the pupil is having difficulties, the Learning Support Department assesses them to determine where help is needed.

Pupils may be supported within their mainstream lessons or they can be withdrawn for specific skill work. Such skills may include reading accuracy and comprehension, spelling, writing, number work or social skills.

We aim to overcome any and all barriers to learning
