Learning Support/SEND - Local Offer

The Learning Support Department is led by our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) Mr Tupman and supported by our team of Learning Support Assistants. The department works with special educational needs and disability (SEND) students in the classroom, through individual and small group interventions in literacy and numeracy and offer supervised social groups and a chill zone at break and lunch time.
Parents/carers are able to contact the school by email or telephone to arrange an appointment to speak to the SENCo or relevant member of our Learning Support Team. 
Progress reports are sent to parents/carers four times a year. This report will outline student's attendance, end of year target, current grade and effort grades. All parents/carers of year 7 students are invited to a 'Meet the Form Tutor' evening in September.  If your son’s progress is a course for concern you will be asked to attend one of our Alert Evenings 
The school also communicates important information and celebrates success through the use of text messages, school website and school newsletter.
