Special Educational Needs

We are pleased to be able to accommodate a wide range of Special Educational Needs. Our aim is that a girl’s individual needs should not stand in the way of her achieving her potential and, to this end, our Special Educational Needs Coordinator meets regularly with the girls concerned and their parents to discussand agree individual education plans.  Most importantly, she also advises staff onappropriate strategies to use with individual girls. Extra time, or other access arrangements in examinations, are implemented as laid down by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) regulations and specified by the government.  As always, parents’ first port of call, should they be aware that their daughter has a particular need, or concerned that she might have, should be their daughter’s Head of Key Stage who will be pleased to arrange contact between parents and the Special Educational Needs Coordinator.
