Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


SEND


    Our aim is for all students to obtain their academic and social potential: this can only be achieved by equal partnership between School and parents/carers. School is a learning environment where students should feel safe, supported and sufficiently prepared to continue their studies at home. We successfully support a number of students with more complex specific needs including physical disabilities.

     

    For any student to succeed they must feel confident to take risks in their learning Ė getting something wrong is a vital part of the learning process. To this end we aim to develop students as independent and resilient learners so that they can do their very best in any learning situation.

     

    Thank you so, so much for sorting this out so quickly. I am trying very hard not to get worried about things. You solving this so quickly means I can relax. Thank you very, very much. Ė A Year 8 Highcliffe Student

     

    We recognise that the support needed for a student with educational differences can be delivered by a wide range of professionals including, but not exclusively, the classroom teacher, teaching assistants and outside agencies. As a mainstream Secondary School, the ultimate goal will always be to keep the student integrated in a full curriculum with their peers. We have a dedicated team of specialist SEND teachers and Teaching Assistants working with students on a daily basis.
    Our provision and practice is in line with the 2014 SEND Code of Practice. The SEND register is dynamic and students may on occasion only spend a short time on it before being removed. In line with the Code of Practice and the Schoolís own beliefs, the studentsí views are central to the support they are offered, whether it is during a lesson or at an extra-curricular club.

     

    At Highcliffe School we feel passionately about supporting students so that they can fulfil their potential and leave us with as many doors open to them as possible, allowing them to make their own decisions about their future.
