What kinds of support does the school currently offer?

  • Additional 1:1 support in specific subjects is provided in exceptional cases.
  • 1:1 sessions and dyslexia support sessions are carried out by our Learning Assistant.
  • Social skills intervention is provided for students who need more targeted support, via a lunchtime club known as FACT (Fun and Collaborative Teamwork).
  • Small group resilience training is offered by the Student Welfare Coordinator
  • Access arrangements are made for exams where a specialist’s report identifies a need and evidence of need has been compiled. Types of provision may include the use of a laptop, additional time or rest breaks. Where there is an identified medical need further arrangements may have to be made.
  • L5, the SEND room, is open every lunch-time to enable students to drop -in for support.
  • Our Sixth form SEND Ambassadors work with individual students and groups.

Where a student needs more specialised support, external agencies and other professionals may become involved
