Welcome to the Learning Support Department
We recognise that each student is unique and therefore the support that they require should be personalised to their needs. The term ‘Neurodiversity’ is used to describe the differences in our brains that cause people to think and behave differently. We celebrate this diversity and look to recognise the unique potential that neurodiverse people have.
- Create an environment in which students with SEND can fulfil their potential
- Enable students with SEND to function as independently as possible within the school environment and the outside world
- Create a partnership in which the school, home and other agencies work together for the benefit of students with SEND.
We know that many families have experienced difficulty in getting the right support in place for their child and aim to work with you to remove these barriers. We understand that SEND is a complex area, full of jargon and statutory processes, and that this can make it difficult for parents and students to navigate. Click on the sections below to understand how we support young people with SEND at Hazel Grove High School, along with support for parents and carers.
