Our Additional Learning Needs department is led by Mrs D Jenkins, who is the Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion.
Mrs Jenkins leads a team that includes our two ALNCos and a team of 17 Teaching Assistants. They provide a range of support within class, through withdrawals and specific intervention groups in order to assist our students and address their individual needs.
In Key Stage 3 we have our Key Skills provision run by our Additional Learning Needs department. This is designed for a small number of pupils who may need additional fast track support and intervention in literacy and numeracy to better access the full curriculum. These classes are usually no more than 15 pupils and are supported by a Teaching Assistant. Pupils will still attend the majority of their lessons with their peers and delivered by subject specialists.
In Key Stage 4 the department offers specialist Level 2 qualifications, such as Asdan.
Should you like further information on this provision, please contact our Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion, Mrs D Jenkins.
