Special Needs Support

All students that attend are referred by KCC and have EHCP’s identifying their SEN

Termly reports are sent home to parents/carers and annual reviews are held yearly in addition to frequent communication in person or via telephone if needed.

N/A

Student centred teaching strategies are used, learning is differentiated and supported in line with individual needs 

Additional support is offered in the form of  1:1 tuition if appropriate, small group work, on-going reviews, functional skills tuition, modular curriculum intervention, SaLT trained staff, 1:1 and group art therapy depending on needs.

Progress is monitored through reading and spelling assessments, functional skills assessment (diagnostics) summative assessments (end of year assessments to record what stills need to improve)

Formative assessments (continuous though unit work and moderation/ IV samples to ensure students more forward)

All students that attend are SEN,  so all trips and off-site visits required are suitable and relevant for all, and carried out in small numbers.

Due to our location and terrain, we are not suitable for wheel chair users. 

Transition days are arranged, as are visits to meet and greet staff arranged and encouraged in advance, time to talk sessions to discuss concerns are also implemented and available on request.

The setting assesses overall effectiveness by student progress and development in conjunction with the board of governors which also consists of a parent/carer representative and Pearson’s / Asdan awarding bodies independent reviews.

If considering a place at the provision your SEN case officer should be contacted in the first instance followed by our office manager or head of provision to arrange a viewing when suitable.

We can manage feedback verbally in person, or via email either directly or care of the governing body and care of the main contact at the provision.
