Support for SEND students
There are four broad areas of need in which reasonable adjustments are made to support our students:
1. Communication and interaction
2. Cognition and learning
3. Social, mental and emotional health
4. Sensory and/or physical
An Education, Health and Care Plan specifies the statutory provision to which the named student is entitled. This may include additional adult support in some of their lessons from Teaching Assistants who work in partnership with the subject teacher to help students to access the curriculum or therapeutic input from external specialists. All students on the register have a Pupil Passports to inform subject teachers of the specific learning challenges so that they can differentiate their work accordingly. Extra support is given to students as deemed necessary and the progress of these students is co-ordinated and monitored by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).
Students on the Special Educational Needs register may also need assessment and support from other professionals including the Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, the Inclusion Co-Ordinator etc.
