Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) at Challney High School for Girls
Challney High School for Girls is experienced in adapting to the needs of students with specific learning difficulties and is used to providing support for those students with a variety of needs including, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, ADHD and physical disabilities or impairments.
The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator monitors our annual intake to ensure that students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities have been identified. The student may then be placed on The School’s SEND Register and the Support Department plays an important role in supporting the student’s future education in the school.
Screening of students across the school takes place as part of monitoring progress in order to identify any students who might be identified as having SEND. Assessments are carried out to ensure each student’s needs are met. A ‘SEND Profile’ is compiled for all girls with SEND to assist their teachers in their classroom differentiation. Students might also attend one to one or small group support sessions if these are needed. Some girls are eligible for Access Arrangements in exams and this is identified and implemented by the subject teachers as a student’s normal working practice. Decisions about Access Arrangements are made based on the current JCQ Guidance.
