In order to ensure that the curriculum is accessible to all pupils, the school provides for pupils with additional learning needs through classroom support and/or withdrawal for small groups for individual tuition. The school aims to offer a high standard of education and equality of opportunity to all individuals.
The department is responsible under the direction of the Additional Needs Coordinator, for ensuring that the Special Educational Needs Act is implemented. A copy of the school’s Additional Learning Needs booklet can be obtained from the school office.
Pupils are identified before entering the school by detailed information from parents/guardians and in the case of transitioning pupils, from the previous school. The school communicates with Primary Headteachers and parents/guardians, and through the Primary / Secondary teacher Coordinator.
In September all pupils in Year 7 undergo a series of general screening tests which indicate their literacy and numeracy levels. The school has a well-resourced room for teaching small groups and for individual pupil support. The exceptionally able child is identified in the same process. There is an excellent working relationship with external agencies such as the Educational Psychologist, Social Services etc.
