SEN & Disability



Provision Outline

The provision, support and opportunities we offer and provide those students we work with directly or indirectly are informed by the following principles that underpin effective and evidence-based practice. These are the ten principles that are the context that informs how we continue to reflect, consult, design and map our provision to best meet the needs and aspirations of our student population:

• Have high expectations and ambitions for all students with or without SEN/D
• Support the learning and teaching of an appropriate curriculum providing challenge, support and aspiration for all students with SEN/D
• Work closely with students, their adults and staff providing frequent, honest and open communication with all groups and enabling effective and meaningful student voice
• Effective use of resources through appropriate deployment of trained Learning Support Assistants, high quality administrative support and a graduated approach to interventions
• Co-ordinate provision with a clear system of referral with a single provision map of the support provided
• Use effective, evidence-based interventions in both in-class, individual and small group support programmes
• Develop expertise within the support department and work in effective partnerships with outside agencies to offer the best access to high quality support
• Track and monitor progress of students with SEND across a range of subjects and identify and analyse patterns of achievements across different SEN/D and vulnerable student groups
• Evaluate the impact of interventions making appropriate adjustments to ensure desired outcomes and progress
