A wide range of Inclusion staff help and support students with a variety of additional needs. These include learning, emotional and social difficulties as well as physical and sensory impairment. Support is delivered with specific targets, which students receive through both individual withdrawal lessons and in-class support, across the curriculum. In addition, we offer small group work and intervention support for students who require extra support with key areas of their learning.
We also have an Inclusion Assistant who provides specific support to students who speak English as an additional language; this is delivered through both in-class support and withdrawal lessons.
As a department, we take great pride in offering educational and pastoral support to meet individual student needs, so that all students can achieve to the best of their ability.
We have attached the latest copy of our latest Accessibilty Audit - which outlines our endeavours to ensure that our school is accessible and inclusive for everyone.
