At Clarendon we aspire to create a truly inclusive learning environment which enables all our students to make progress and become happy, confident young adults.
When a student has a special educational need, we ensure that all teachers are aware of these needs and strategies in our secure, internal online database.
If a student has a specific educational need, we also offer a range of different interventions which help us target their individual needs. Students are selected for these interventions based on their needs, data collected from literacy screeners and from teacher feedback.
· ELSA (Emotional Literacy) intervention
· Toe by Toe reading intervention
· Targeted Maths Intervention
· 1:1 mentoring
· A Peer mentoring scheme
· A Basic Literacy Intervention
· THRIVE mental health sessions
· Targeted Spelling Intervention
· Speech and Language Intervention
· Physio for students with physical impairment needs
If you have any concerns about your child and wish to have a meeting or some advice, please contact Ms Bryant the SENCo, or from October 2019, Mr Nolan who will be SENCo whilst I am on maternity leave.
