Special Education Needs

Special Educational Needs

The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Department is committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students to enable them to have every opportunity to reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. This is achieved by working in partnership with parents, students, teaching staff and external agencies.

Students' SEN needs are met individually and appropriate support put in place to meet their needs. We assess students to ensure examinations are accessible to all students regardless of their disability and appropriate modifications are put in place.

If you have any questions about the support your child is currently receiving, or you have any concerns that your child may have an SEN need contact the school.

We welcome visits to the school from prospective parents; contact the school to discuss your child’s SEN needs and the support we offer.

English as an Additional Language

We identify students whose first language is not English at the point of admission to the school. The vast majority of students do not require additional support; however there are students who are identified as needing additional support by teaching staff and from literacy screening testing.  The EAL support is outlined in our policy.
