At Sacred Heart Catholic High School, in accordance with the gospel values, we aim to uphold the right of all students to have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. Here, every child is equal and unique and we aim to provide a safe and supportive environment where pupils can flourish.
There are a number of reasons why pupils may be identified as having special educational needs or a disability (SEND) and we support pupils of all ages across the ability range; some of the reasons are outlined below:
They have a specific difficulty need such as dyslexia or dyscalculia
They have a sensory impairment, for example a hearing or visual impairment
They have difficulties communicating or with social interaction
They have mental health or emotional difficulties that are affecting their learning
They are struggling to make progress with their learning despite appropriate in class differentiation
We are very proud of all we do to support pupils who attend Sacred Heart Catholic High School with SEND. Pupils have access to a full range of educational and pastoral support to ensure they make excellent progress and feel happy and fulfilled at school.
These webpages are intended to give you general information regarding the ways in which we ensure we support all of our pupils with SEND, in order that they can realise their potential. It may not list every skill, resource and technique we use to achieve this as these are continually developed and we try to modify our provision to meet the needs of individual pupils.
Children with SEND at Sacred Heart High School make outstanding progress. Other useful documents such as our SEN and Disability policy are also available on the school website.
