Individual Needs

We aim to meet the needs of all of our pupils in the classroom, through setting, differentiation and excellent staff-pupil ratios.

However, for approximately 20% of our pupils, at any one time, this is not sufficient to meet their learning or emotional needs. To provide additional support, be it short or long term, we have an Individual Needs (IN) Department.

The IN Department consists of a specialist teacher, special needs assistants and academic mentors, led by the individual educational needs co-ordinator (IENCo).
