The Additional Support Team

We pride ourselves on being a dedicated staff team with expertise in managing a broad spectrum of special educational needs. We have an outstanding team of experienced Learning Support Workers and Keyworkers committed to working with students both in and out of the classroom to identify and meet their individual learning needs and goals. We currently support learners with an Education Health Care Plan and other needs across the curriculum.

Our Learning Support Service underpins this commitment to enable all students to reach their full potential.

We are committed to ensuring that we comply with the Special Educational Needs code of practice, ensuring that those students with learning difficulties, disabilities and Education Health and Care Plans have equal access to our facilities and courses. We do everything we can to help our students break down any barriers to learning.

All learners with an EHCP are allocated a dedicated Support worker, who will be able to communicate with you regarding your young person’s progress.

Support staff also facilitate other sessions such as cookery for independent living, social interaction groups, and an independent travel group.

Our parents and carers group meeting happens annually and is an excellent opportunity to meet the whole team, talk to other parents, ask questions and take part in activities around preparing for adulthood outcomes for your son/daughter.

 

Transition

We value the importance of the transition process into further education and offer personalised transition plans to suit the learner’s needs. You can arrange with us up to 8 sessions prior to starting college. This will include a tour of the college, transition support and tasters on your chosen course/option.

If your young person has an interest in what we offer, feel free to either come along and meet some of the team at one of our upcoming open evenings or feel free to contact us directly to arrange a tour of our campus.

If you would like to arrange a meeting to discuss your young person’s needs, book a tour or just have a general query, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
