Students with pastoral and/or specific learning needs will be identified early in the transition process from Primary School by a dedicated SEND team, supported by the Trust experts experienced in working with local Primary schools. Students with identified specific needs will be supported throughout their education to overcome barriers so that their achievements are at least equal to those of their peers.
There will be a dedicated area that brings together all aspects of supporting students, SEND, behaviour support, Counselling, support for students for whom English is not their first language and those students who are Pupil Premium or Looked after. There will be regular contact from an appropriate member of staff with support ensuring that ALL children are able to achieve in line with their peers and that there is an equality of opportunity for everyone.
Our ‘Student Champion’ will have a brief to get to know those children who are in need of help or support, understand what their challenges are and facilitate appropriate solutions.
