Special Educational Needs & Disability
CCHS Learning Support

The Learning Support Department is run in line with the SEN Code of Practice and offers support and advice to students with learning difficulties and to their families. Whilst recognising that 'all teachers are teachers of pupils with Special Educational Needs' we do withdraw those students with Educational Healthcare Plans to put individually tailored programmes into place - ranging from structured literacy and numeracy support to reading recovery and mentoring sessions.

Staff in the department are committed to promoting inclusion and independent learning alongside classroom support to facilitate access of a mainstream curriculum.

Students' learning difficulties are identified through close liaison with our feeder primary schools and through testing by departmental staff and outside professionals. SEN Passports are produced, up-dated and managed by departmental staff and close contact is maintained with parents as we firmly believe that, by working together, your children can achieve more.
