Local Offer


A child has special educational needs if he or she has a difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. Such support may involve withdrawal from certain classes for individual or small-group teaching or in-class support. A child’s difficulty may be through a learning difficulty, a behavioural problem or a physical disability. The school’s full SEN policy addresses these varied problems and identifies individual requirements, allocation of resources and staffing policies. Our learning support team aims to provide extra help for students with special educational needs to enable them to reach their full potential.
