SEND and Student Services

We value the abilities and achievements of all of our students and are committed to providing the best possible environment for learning. We aim to prepare each student to be able to increase their ability to cope with the demands of college, work and leisure, in life after school.

We aim for all of our students to be included, and to have access to a broad and balanced mainstream education. We actively encourage students with Special Educational Needs to be fully included within school and within the wider community.

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator, Ms Chapman supports our teachers along with additional support staff, as appropriate, to deliver appropriate differentiation so that all student needs are met.

HLTAs, are assigned to the core subjects English, maths and science; they work with the HoFs to support learners. Additional pastoral support for vulnerable learners is delivered in The Stand.
