Strive to be your best


The majority of our support is given in class.  We have found that this type collaborative learning to be really successful.  We like to liaise regularly with teaching staff to ensure that we are able to provide effective support for students in class.  We are also able to provide information about our SEN students and their needs and strategies.

There are times when some students are withdrawn from lessons for specialist 1 to 1 support or small group work.
