Send Department

The SEND department is a forward-thinking department which strives to develop the inclusion, independence, and confidence of young people with additional needs. The department consists of a team of teaching assistants, a Specialist Teacher and a SENCo.

The department work collaboratively with teaching staff, pastoral teams and external agencies to ensure students have access to high quality provision that supports their progress and unlocks their potential. The department have their own designated resource base ‘The Oasis’ and students with additional needs can access this resource throughout the school day.

The team offer a wide variety of intervention programmes and activities that address key areas of need and help students develop their skills, confidence, and attitudes to learning.

The progress of the young person is monitored and reviewed regularly in line with the Plan, Do, Review cycle. The department has excellent links with both primary schools and post 16 providers to ensure continuity of support as students progress onto the next stage of their education.
