We believe that every student, regardless of background or circumstance, should be given an equal opportunity to become the best that they can possibly be. We are committed to ensuring that our students develop the skills and competencies necessary to prepare them for adulthood and life beyond school. We place a strong emphasis on the development of social skills and emotional intelligence in order to ensure that we are successful in this aim.
Our Resource Centre caters for students with an EHCP for complex learning needs. Students in our Resource Centre need a highly specialised curriculum with a large emphasis on independent living and work based skills. Our students will study alternative qualifications to our mainstream GCSE curriculum and will work as part of a small group for a large part of their timetable. Students in our Resource Centre will attend some mainstream lessons with a high level of support and differentiation within the classroom. We provide personalised intervention programmes to target the specific needs of each student. This may include therapeutic work from speech therapy or physiotherapy and bespoke literacy intervention where appropriate.
We work closely with students, parents/carers and teachers to:
- 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
- Ensure that the needs of our students are well identified and understood
