The SEND/Additional needs faculty seeks to encourage and reward excellence of every kind and to enable all students to realise their potential and achieve independence. We have a mantra of ‘Inclusion elevates all’, where staff make reasonable adjustments in class to help students access the curriculum.
The SEND strategy is focused on the following 2 key areas:
Quality first teaching – making sure staff have up to date information on a pupil and are equipped with relevant resources and strategies.
Targeted and specific intervention – staff within the SEND/additional needs faculty work closely with individuals or small groups of students to address need in areas of cognition and learning, communication and interaction, physical and medical as well as social, emotional and mental health.
