SEN provision at the school is strategically led by the SENDCo and the Inclusion Lead.

SENDCo –Miss Bethan Williams

Inclusion Lead Mrs Tracey Bankes
7 Teaching Assistants, including a TA PE co-coordinator.


Our HLTA leads intervention sessions, lunch time club and teaches when necessary. 1 of our TAs works as a key worker with a pupil and the others are class based working with small groups with intervention or class curriculum work. Our TA PE coordinator works with all classes during their PE sessions.  

The SEN register consists of 4 students with an EHC Plan who are considered ‘High Need’ and 10 students and who need ‘Additional Support’. All of our students on the SEN registry have a ‘passport’ showing their individual need, what works for them and what doesn’t. They also have person centred ‘One Plans’ .  A number of other students are monitored from time to time to consider if their needs require further intervention and support.  In the majority of cases the rest of the students in the school successfully achieve their academic goals by the provision of ‘High Quality Teaching’ by every teacher across the school.

Our Children:

  • Receive additional support for reading, writing, spelling, speech and language, EAL and numeracy.
  • Complete assessment tests in literacy and numeracy.
  • Meet with specialist staff and mentors from school and external agencies.
  • Can spend their lunch times away from the main playground area by joining in lunch time club.


The SENCO and Inclusion lead attend the weekly SLT meeting to communicate issues regarding SEN and students on the SEN register.

Priority Areas of SEN Development in the school:

  • Continuously track the progress of SEN students across the school in order to set-up and deliver effective intervention in the appropriate areas.
