Special Educational Needs

The aim of the Learning Support Department is to enable students with Special Educational Needs to function successfully in both the learning and social environments of the school. We work together as a team and with the rest of the school to provide support and additional help for students where necessary.

All staff have access to a Learning Support Register and student individual education plans (IEPs) which outline student needs and appropriate strategies.

If you require a copy of the School Special Educational Needs Policy please contact Claire Ellis, Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO).
