Welcome to the Specialist Centre

Here in the Specialist Centre we offer specialist provision for 20 students (four per year group) with speech, language and communication difficulties to help them achieve a fully integrated school life experience.  The students all have a statement of Special Education Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and have challenges which include difficulties with vocabulary, speech, reading, spelling, comprehension, sequencing, memory and autistic spectrum conditions.

 

The staff in the Specialist Centre offer students:

  • Support in a majority of lessons from the teaching assistants or the Head of Centre.
  • Withdrawal lessons in small groups to offer additional support in subjects such as maths, english and science.
  • One-to-one tuition to tackle individual difficulties.
  • Option support in Years 10 and 11.
  • Speech and language therapy weekly in small groups with additional 1:1 as required.
  • Extensive resources, including computer software to help with specific learning problems.
  • Optional homework club to ensure students do not struggle with the workload.
  • A school experience that is tailored, as far as possible, to meet each student’s particular needs.
  • Access to vocational courses in Year 10 and 11.
  • Help with skills needed for independence including travel on public transport and completing college application forms.
  • Support for involvement in extra-curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Award and school trips.
