About the role
Our Learning Support team was recognised as a particular strength of the school at our most recent OFSTED. We have a larger than average population of SEND (Special Educational Need and Disability) students yet OFSTED said:-
“Pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities make strong progress because they receive effective support for their learning. Pupils who are supported by the on-site support centre for pupils who have dyslexia make good progress. Pupils who attend alternative provision achieve well”.
“Additional funding for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is used well to support their learning and progress. A skilled team of teaching assistants is part of the provision carefully tailored to meet the needs of these pupils. Teachers receive good support and guidance to support pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities with their difficulties in learning.”
