Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The Learning Support Department is made up of a small team of Teaching Assistants, an Assistant Special Educational Needs Coordinator and a Head of Learning Support (SENDCo). The role of the Learning Support Department is to aid the learning and progress of students with special educational needs, and to help remove any barriers to learning that they might experience.
The main objective of the Special Needs Policy is to assist any child who has a special educational need which is affecting their progress at school. The support for students with SEND is coordinated by the school’s SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator) and it is their job to ensure that students with barriers to learning are identified, appropriate interventions implemented and their progress reviewed on a regular basis.
