The SEN team take great care to understand the individual needs of each of our students. Our aim is always to provide the right support so that every student can reach his/her full potential.

The SEN team provide a variety of interventions to target literacy, reading and numeracy. The SENCo and literacy/numeracy co-ordinator identify students needs through tests.

Our aim is to raise reading & spelling and numeracy ages to chronological age and above. Tests have proven that by raising levels to above the students chronological age this will enable them to access the whole curriculum.

Parents/carers will have the opportunity to meet with Mr Johnson, and Mrs Cumberpatch and their team during a review afternoon in the school year. Staff will also be available at parents' evenings and academic tutorials.

If your child/family has support with outside agencies, Mr Johnson, Mrs Cumberpatch and Mrs O'Dowd will attend meetings and provide information to help your child. A space can also be arranged in school if your child needs to meet with professionals.

The SENCo and the SEN team are housed in the Oak block in the Zone. The Zone is an area where SEN students can obtain support during unstructured time. Our new sensory room is also available for students to use.
