Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator:  Lucy Wilkes, 

Our aim is to be inclusive and to adapt the environment and provision to meet the needs of students who attend our school.  Although we are a selective school, with an entrance exam, and therefore have a relatively low level of need in our school, we are keen to provide well for those students who come to us with barriers to their learning.

We ensure that we:

  • Monitor the progress of all students; some young people with SEN can be identified at birth, other difficulties only become evident as young people grow and develop

  • Listen to the student

  • Listen to parents/carers

  • Are able to distinguish between students who may need some support within the classroom and within the differentiated curriculum, and students with Special Educational Needs

  • Identify barriers to learning using our knowledge and understanding of the four primary areas of need.  The areas of need are:

    Communication and Interaction (C+I)

    Cognition and Learning (C+L)

    Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH)

    Sensory and/or Physical (S+P)

  • Provide appropriately for all students with any kind of Special Educational Need or Disability
