Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Department

The SEND department provides support for students with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) and SEND Support Plans. We support some students who may not need a formal plan but who still require some additional monitoring due to special educational needs or disability. 

The SEND department are responsible for the following:

  • Supporting the identification of students with SEND
  • Co-ordinating the provision for students with SEND that is “additional to and different from” other students in school
  • Allocating the support of Teaching Assistants (TAs) within lessons
  • Planning and evaluating interventions with TAs and outside agencies to meet student’s needs
  • Conducting psychometric testing for the purposes of exam access arrangements
  • Communicating with parents of students with SEND regularly
  • Meeting with various external support agencies to meet student’s needs
  • Leading EHCP and SEND Support review meetings with students, families and outside agencies
  • Ensuring that the school keeps the records of all pupils with SEND up to date and in line with the requirements of GDPR
  • Working closely with colleagues in primary schools within the pyramid and the Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) to ensure a smooth transition in to year 7
  • Liaising with colleagues from further education and training providers to plan effective transition beyond year 11
