“The teachers at The North School know that I can have problems in school. They understand that I sometimes need extra help to be able to get on with my work and that I need a quiet place to calm down when I get upset. ” Year 9 student.
Every student attending The North School is unique and has an individual profile of strengths and areas for development.
Teachers plan lessons so that every young person in their class can make progress academically, socially and emotionally. However sometimes, even with careful planning and the provision of adapted resources and intervention, young people do not make the progress we would expect for them and they need some additional help and support.
Students requiring this additional and specialist support are placed on the school’s Special Educational Needs register. This means that the school’s SENCO will arrange for additional targeted intervention to be put into place to ensure that the young person is able to make progress across the curriculum.
The school’s SEN Policy and Accessibility and Enablement Plan describes in detail the support available for students with SEN.
The school’s SENCO is Mrs C. Clipstone
