Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)
We offer a range of interventions and personalised learning strategies to ensure every individual student’s needs are taken into consideration and appropriate support is provided.
The SEND Team
Our Learning Support Team works across the school in conjunction with other departments to deliver a range of support and interventions that include:
• Social skills programmes
• ELSA support
• Dyslexia friendly classrooms
• The IDL Literacy programme
• Supported reading programmes
• In-class support
• Personal care programmes
We also liaise closely with a range of external agencies, such as the Sensory and Physical Teaching Service, to ensure individual needs are appropriately met.
Students can also benefit from the support of the wider team, consisting of:
- 25 Teaching Assistants
- 2 Emotional Literacy Support Assistants
- 2 Pastoral Support Assistants
- Education Welfare Officer
- Pastoral Support (Head of Year and Assistant Head of Year)
- Careers Advice and Guidance Officer
On-site facilities for students with a sensory or physical disability include specialist shower and toilets, sound proofing, height adjustable tables, ramps and non-slip surfacing. All subjects can also be accommodated on the ground floor to support wheelchair users.
All applications for admission to South Hunsley from students with special educational needs are carefully assessed to ensure we have the necessary facilities and support in place to be able to provide a high quality programme.
