Our experienced and professional team of teaching assistants work under the direction of the SENDCO to provide a comprehensive package of support which addresses a range of Special Educational Needs. The support for your child is personalised to fit their needs, in consultation with our specialist TAs, teaching staff, parents and outside agencies such as Speech and Language Therapists or Educational Psychologists. We believe that the key to effective support is engaging the student and allowing them to target the areas in which they need support. Together with the school’s pastoral team, we plan, do and review the support in place to ensure we provide for your child at every Key Stage, academically and socially.
