Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

The Learning Support coordinator oversees the assessment of the learning needs of our students and plans appropriate support and interventions. In liaison with staff, the coordinator will also identify students who may be eligible for additional support throughout their education and in public exams.

It is recognised that there are many students who underachieve as a result of Specific Learning Difficulties, which may affect their achievement wholly or in part. Such students are identified across the ability range. Account is taken of these difficulties when teaching sets are organised. Such students receive support for their needs through Individualised Learning Programmes or intervention programmes delivered to students with similar needs in small groups. These programmes take place during morning registration and period 6 after school so that students do not miss their lessons.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

Student’s progress is tracked on an on going basis and parents are contacted to discuss action when students are not making the expected progress. Other measures are routinely used to gauge progress against other needs such as attendance data, emotional well-being and engagement.

Parents receive reports twice a year and each year group has a yearly parents’ evening to discuss each student’s progress. Learning Support staff are available to meet parents at each of these meetings. Parents are encouraged to make direct contact with Tutors and subject teachers either through the planner or by contacting the school.

Additional interventions are arranged for students with specific learning difficulties. Parents are informed about interventions by letter and it is expected that students attend these interventions. Parents and carers will also be informed when a student is discharged or any new intervention is put in place.

All students are provided with a student planner for home and school communication.
