Specialist support is available to all students who need it, whether they have special educational needs or have missed periods of study due to illness.
The Personalised Learning Centre (PLC), located in Lockton House, provides a calm, structured learning environment for students who have missed school or are at risk of falling attendance levels because of ill health, a temporary injury or anxiety.
Students work in the PLC on a part-time basis (dependent on individual subject choices) and are supported to enable them to return to full-time schooling as soon as possible. Work is provided by the students' subject teachers.
Referrals to the Specialist Teaching Service are usually through the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Ms Arnold. This outreach service ensures that students with visual impairments, hearing problems, autism or similar difficulties receive the help they need.
These referrals come from a student’s GP or the school nurse.
This confidential drop-in counselling service – known as 'open door counselling' – is available to students every Monday. The sessions, which are run by qualified counsellors, give students an opportunity to share problems and fears, and to look for ways to address them. Referral is by pastoral staff at Ashby School.
The school aims to provide an education to suit every child. For students whose needs are not met by mainstream education, there are alternative curriculum options to ensure that every child succeeds at some level.
These include work placements, vocational studies and involvement in community projects.
