The Access and Inclusion department aims to provide an environment in which all students are fully included in the life of the school, challenged to aim high and provided with a wealth of opportunities to fulfil their potential. We aim to support students in a range of ways to help remove barriers to learning and nurture independence so that they eager to learn and develop into confident young women.
Our aim is to ensure all students' needs are met in the mainstream classroom wherever possible through Quality First Teaching. Access and Inclusion staff work closely with teachers and specialists to ensure work is engaging, challenging and promotes high aspirations for our students. Staff are provided with targeted strategies to support each individual student, as well as resources and training to support inclusive teaching in all curriculum areas.
The Access and Inclusion team regularly liaise with parents and carers, so that all provision for students with SEND is planned for and reviewed with the family and young person at the heart of the process.
Our school has reviewed our Inclusion Policy to meet the requirements for SEND in line with the new SEND Code of Practice effective from 1 September 2014. Full information about the range of support and opportunities for students with SEND is outlined in our SEND Information Report and Inclusion Policy below.
