Response to 14 Questions


The Learning Support Department exists:


    i) To ensure that all students, whether or not they have SEN, have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which is differentiated to meet their individual needs;
    ii) To ensure early identification, assessment and provision for any student who may have special educational needs;
    iii) To help every student realise his or her full potential and optimise their self-esteem;
    iv) To enable all staff to play a part in identifying SEN pupils and to take responsibility for recognising and addressing their individual needs;
    v) To encourage an effective partnership with parents and carers offering a joint learning approach at home and at school;
    vi) To encourage and support students to participate in decision-making through their educational career;
    vii) To offer a graduated response to needs in accordance with the SEN Code of Practice.
The Learning Support staff work closely with students, teachers and parents to devise and support Individual Education Plans. Parents can make appointments to discuss their children’s progress with the SEN teachers and the school’s advisory staff, who visit regularly. The Department aims to improve students’ confidence and increase their independence.

Individual Education Plans focus on how students will improve their performance in school. Students are carefully assessed and monitored during their transition from Primary school.
