Curriculum » Learning Support » Staffing

The aim of the Learning Support Faculty is to identify pupils having special educational needs and to organise a continuum of provision that enables these identified pupils to take their rightful place fully within the school and community and to make the most of their potential. In order for the pupils to gain their entitlement to a broad, balanced curriculum, there is full integration into the school pastoral system and a close co-operation with other faculty teams.

Provision is co-ordinated and directed by a team of 1 full time teacher, 2 part time teachers and 14 Teaching Assistants (TAs) who ensure the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEN policy in line with the 1993 Education Act and the SEN Code of Practice. Specialisms include provision for pupils with specific learning difficulties (SpLD).
