Students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) at Whitley Academy will initially have their needs assessed by the Learning Support Team. The team is committed to all students achieving their potential and having access to the support and enrichment which allows them to do this. We are able to offer a range of programmes to assist a variety of learning needs across all of the key stages. Assistance will vary depending on individual needs and can range from support during normal curriculum time to small group work and one to one support. The SEN Department works alongside the Inclusion Department to promote a holistic view when supporting students with learning, social and emotional difficulties.
The Learning Support Team has a SENCO, Assistant SENCO, two HLTA’s and 6 Teaching Assistants.
*SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator)
*HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant)
The Learning Support Team is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the SEN policy. It co-ordinates support and provision for students with statements/EHCP’s as well as provision for those who are identified as requiring further support.
The Learning Support Team offers a range of services and interventions such as:
Whitley Academy values all members of our community as individual people with differing needs and abilities. We will work to provide a stimulating learning environment where everyone feels valued and enabled to reach beyond their potential.
