SEND Department

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) team lead the provision for pupils of diverse needs on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities list.

The SENCo (Mrs Dunne) and Assistant SENCo (Mr Perry) lead a successful department of 6 Learning Support Practioners and 18 Learning Support Assistants. Ofsted had this to say about the way the SEND team are able to support learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities:

“Learning Support Assistants are highly skilled and deployed well. They liaise closely with the teacher, give just the right amount of support and encourage students to be more independent. They ensure that all are fully included in lessons and help them to overcome many of their barriers to learning.”

The SEND department offer a systemantic programme of interventions. Programmes are carefully planned and highly effective in raising pupils’ attainment and developing their social, emotional and mental health needs.

In addition to the range of intervention programmes available, the SEND team offer a Skills Development course designed to develop targeted pupils’ basic skills. The Skills Development programme is led by the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Department and specifically targets pupils who would benefit from additional support in securing greater competency in Literacy, Numeracy an d Science. Pupils may receive up to five hours of additional Numeracy and Literacy teaching where appropriate.
