In Key Stage 4 and the 6th form, we are still here to support our SEND students, although we hope that they will begin to develop their independence ready for their transition to post-16 or post-18 provision. Below is a list of some of the support that we put in.

Key stage 4: years 10 and 11
  • More student input and discussion of their Student Support Plans
  • Booster classes for specific subjects
  • Extra revision classes and homework study groups after school
  • Small group and one-to-one withdrawal from classes
  • In-class Teaching Assistant support
  • Exam access arrangements are assessed and formally put into place for GCSE examinations.
  • Dyslexia mentoring and drop in sessions
  • Extra careers meetings with our Career’s Advisor and support for applications to post-16 provisions, as well as extra visits to college if needed

6th form: years 12 and 13

We encourage our SEND students to become part of the 6th form pastoral system and work closely with them to make sure staff understand any extra needs or barriers to learning, however, we don’t abandon them!

  • Student support plans, written in partnership with students to send out to teachers
  • Continuance of exam access arrangements
  • Extra support from the career’s advisor and support for University applications
