Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Welcome to our SEND page, where you can find information about all the support Parrs Wood High School offers to Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families. We have a dedicated Inclusion team of Learning Support Assistants who work with our Young People to help them enjoy learning and succeed in their studies, under the guidance of the Director of Faculty – Inclusion and SENDCo (Miss C Doherty).
The Inclusion department:
- supports teachers to adapt and personalise their teaching to ensure equal access for all Young People to all lessons
- provides in-class support to some Young People
- delivers individual or group interventions to support Young People with a specific area of need
Our Inclusion team work with our Young People to support their individual learning needs through a holistic approach.
We are proud to be an inclusive school. All Young People have an equal right to learn and succeed in our school. Through our Graduated approach to SEND, we strive to provide a secure, caring and happy environment in which all of our Young People can experience success and enjoyment.
We believe in equal opportunities for all, where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and is equally valued. We value the views of our Young People and their families and provide opportunities for them to influence change and to be fully involved in the decision-making process.
We believe that Inclusion is essential in ensuring the equality of opportunity for all learners whatever their age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, attainment and background. This demonstrates our commitment to valuing the diversity of the Parrs Wood community.
