Special Educational Needs (SEN)

“Disabled students and those who have special educational needs are making good progress. Students supported through school action are making particularly good progress because leaders identify their needs early and arrange extra support for their numeracy and literacy.”

King Edward VI is proud of its achievements of students on the SEN register. In 2013 51% of students with SEN achieved 5A*-C grades and 100% achieved 5A*-G grades. Alongside academic achievements our students develop Socially, Emotionally and grow in their Independence skills that impact on all areas of their life.

We are very fortunate as a school to have a large Learning Support department with highly trained and experienced members of staff that can work with students 1-2-1, in small groups or within the classroom. Intervention is targeted based on student need and is closely evaluated, the focus of all interventions is to develop strategies that will positively impact across the whole curriculum. Therefore the impact of intervention is also monitored for its impact on whole school achievement.

We have a secure transition process whether your student is transferring to us in Year 7 or within the academic year. Gathering information from all parties involved in the student’s care is paramount to ensuring the student feels confident in their own abilities from day 1.
