More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

We are a secondary school that takes students form 11-18 years. Students follow the National Curriculum and take GCSEs at 16 years in English, maths and science. Other subjects are available. Religious education and sex education are also taught but students can choose to remove their child from these subjects. Students who are 17 & 18 years take A level subjects. The school also provides a range of after school activities. The council provides free transport to and from school and free school meals if students meet the council requirements.

Additional and Special Educational Needs

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

Our curriculum is designed to match your child’s needs by offering personalised learning which is differentiated according to their ability and their style of learning. This will develop their skills as learners and help them to become more independent, enabling them to progress and reach their full potential. The classroom environment may also be adapted to suit individual needs e.g. providing a workstation or a visual timetable. Where a child has been identified with SEN, their work will often be differentiated by the class teacher to enable them to access the curriculum more easily.

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

Subject teachers and the SENCo are happy to discuss how well your child is doing; these discussions do not need to be limited to the regular Support Plan meetings. Some students may also have a home/school communication book so that parents/carers and staff can monitor progress, record concerns or share achievements.
 All reports from outside agencies are passed to you with their ideas for support or resources that may be used at home.

Regular meetings (three times a year) also provide opportunities for parents/carers to discuss the student’s progress.
