Learning Support and Extension

Swakeleys School values the diversity of its student population and strives to meet the needs of all learners. The staff within the learning support and extension department work to support students who have Special Educational Needs (SEN) and English as an Additional language (EAL). Students are identified by means of transition information, information from parents, school based assessments and subject assessments.

Students with SEN or EAL are supported in a variety of ways by the subject teachers and the learning support and extension department. Students may be supported in small group settings outside the class, they may receive in class support or they may receive support from an outside agency such as an educational psychologist.

Our building is accessible to a range of disabilities, being largely on the ground floor. We have a lift where the building extend to the first floor. Our current provision which very successfully supports a blind pupil reinforces the good access arrangements we have.
