Students who have identified Special Educational Needs are considered carefully on entry to the school. If they have a Statement of Need or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) the school will ensure that any entitlement to extra help is provided. The school is pledged to help any child with Special Needs as far as its resources will allow. For some learners this means either withdrawal into a small class or for individual support, or providing teaching assistant or teacher help in the classroom.

If a child is found to be in need of help in the school, then a careful evaluation of needs is carried out and an appropriate level of resource is sought.

The Learning Support Club at break and lunchtime is especially popular and effective in supporting our most vulnerable students.

The Learning Support department is overseen by the Assistant Headteacher – Inclusion, Roger Quaintance, who is the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.

The Learning Support base is managed by two SENDCo assistants and incorporates a team of experienced senior teaching assistants.

We have staff who are skilled and experienced in working with dyslexia, literacy, autism and numeracy support. We also provide access to a range of other bespoke provisions.

An Area Resource Centre (ARC) with a specialism in autism is based on the school site. This is led by Jon Chinn. County hold an external admission panel for access to the ARC. This is independent of the main school admission process and all decisions about entry to the ARC are made externally. Applications are not handled by LSCC.

You can view the Special Education Needs policy by visiting the Policies page.
