Special Education Needs



This school is committed to providing equality of access for all students to a broad and balanced curriculum. The educational aims for students with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) are the same as those for ALL students. We will:

  • make the curriculum as accessible as possible to meet the individual needs of each pupil.
  • ensure all staff are aware of the different types of needs faced by our students, so that suitable provision can be made in their subject areas.
  • implement additional support and intervention where necessary to assist students in overcoming learning difficulties.
  • work closely with parents and carers and keep them informed of their child’s progress and the support in place for the daughter

SEND is divided up into four main areas of need. 

  • Cognition and Learning – including Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and other Specific Learning Difficulties.
  • Speech, Language and Communication – including verbal processing difficulties and selective mutism.
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health – including Autistic Spectrum Disorders and other social communication difficulties.
  • Sensory and Physical Difficulties – including visual and auditory impairments and varying levels of physical need.

Our team of Teaching Assistants provide support in the classroom and focused intervention to small groups and individuals in the Blue Lagoon, our dedicated SEND area.  For further information please read our SEND Policy and Accessibility Plan  and our SEND Information Report.
