Specialist support lessons are timetabled to meet each individual pupil’s need where possible and careful consideration is given to which subject is substituted. Extra Literacy and numeracy support classes are provided in the Secondary School. Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) are written for all students receiving additional support, clearly identifying specific targets for success and advising teachers and parents on strategies to help support students. Support may be provided on a short-term or long-term basis. We work with each student for as long as it takes towards their personal goals. Annual reviews are carried out for those who have LEA statements.
Our SENCO is responsible for Access Arrangements for internal and external examinations and works closely with the School’s Examinations Officer.
We firmly believe in helping all our students achieve their potential and with early detection, intervention and specialist teaching we are able to continue to ensure St. Michael’s excellent results.
