Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Learning Support and Special Educational Needs
King Edward VI School is committed to the education of all students. We have a strong and experienced Learning Support Department working to ensure all needs are met. Students are assessed in Years 7 and 9, information is gathered from previous schools and subject teachers refer students if a need arises. The department maintains a confidential register of learning support so that all staff are aware of support a student may require. We use many strategies to support students; this may include in-class assistance, intensive support or learning programmes, individual mentoring. In addition, we work with a range of outside agencies to provide the expert help some students need.  Our SENCO Lead is Mrs Pemberton.

Details of how we support students with Special Educational Needs can be found through the following link to our SEN information report on Staffordshire County Council’s website:
