SEND Support – How Can We Help
How we can help
Our support plans include a combination the following services:
Provision of Special Needs Teachers, Tutors and Teaching Assistants
We hand-pick the best professionals to deliver support programmes. Our special needs teaching assistants work with individual or groups of children. Our special needs teachers and tutors plan and deliver individualised teaching programmes. We provide ongoing support, to both the school and staff through regular contact and reviews once the placement has been made. Read a case study >
Assessments of individual children
We believe that to get a comprehensive picture of a child’s needs we need to use a range of different tools. This is done in collaboration with the parents/carers, child and host school to get an accurate picture of the child’s needs. A full written assessment is accompanied by a range of follow-on possibilities for the child which include strategies for on-going support.

Home Tuition and School – Split Provision
We offer home tuition for children whose current education provision is not meeting their needs. Placements can be in a variety of settings based on consultation and discussion. We aim to successfully re-integrate pupil’s back into a mainstream setting. The main advantage of this is to give staff time to think about support strategies. With the child remaining on school role, the necessity to go down of exclusion may be avoided. Find out more about our respite provision > Read a case study >
This is often a short-term provision which offers support to the child/young person whilst a longer term educational setting is found. One of our strengths is reengaging young people who have become disaffected from education. During this process we work to ensure the child is progressing educationally, and we endeavour to support the child to develop emotional resilience in order to move forward into the next stage.

Staff mentoring and coaching
Our experienced learning mentors work alongside school staff to support them in their teaching. This adds to their knowledge and supports the development of skills necessary to manage children with SEND in the long-term. Read a case study >
