Special Education Needs
The SEND Team works closely with the Pastoral Team to ensure that the needs of all the students are met. We recognise that at some point during their learning experience, some pupils may find they need a helping hand to support them on their journey. This support could take many different forms, and we assist students with a variety of needs.
We aim to “create a learning environment where young people have the freedom, confidence and support to enjoy learning and achieve the very best they can.” (ToPS Aims and Objectives)
We understand that every pupil has a unique set of needs and strengths. We use assessment to develop a programme of support and make adjustments to our learning provision in order to allow the pupil to access the curriculum fully and with confidence. At times further investigation is required and we can then arrange for an EducationalPsychologist to meet with the pupil and make an assessment. We work with both parents and pupils to maintain continuity and regularly review the provision put in place. Where necessary, we can also assess and advise for support during exams such as; extra time, reader or scribe.
