During the Summer Term, liaison meetings are held with the feeder primary schools. This allows information about students with SEND to be transferred so that it can be used in IEPs and to inform the Year 7 grouping process. This is also where we identify students who may need additional transition visits or be a part of the Nurture Group. During this time we attend annual reviews for students with SEND to support appropriate target setting for secondary placement
The majority of support takes place within the classroom. Support is prioritised for students with Statements of Special Educational Needs and EHC Plans. There is also generalised support for other students with additional needs. Learning Support Assistants in class provide support for students as directed by the teacher.
Homework club takes place in the library every day between 8am and 8:30 and 3:25 pm – 4:30pm after school.
