Special Educational Needs (SEN) Department
Message from Jessica Gibson, Special Educational Needs Coordinator:
The Advisory Department, based at Lockton House, works in partnership with mainstream teachers, parents and outside agencies to provide quality assessment and monitoring of students’ learning needs, effective classroom support and guidance and specialist individualised or small-group tuition in literacy and numeracy.
The Personalised Learning Centre, also based at Lockton House, supports students with short-term medical or emotional needs.
Our mission is clear and simple: to create an environment in which every student with special educational needs receives high-quality teaching and provision, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
