Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Provision at Longcroft School and Sixth Form College
- At Longcroft School we aim to enable students to reach their full potential in all areas. We help students overcome difficulties they may experience in accessing the curriculum, whether this is a specific learning difficulty, a medical problem or an emotional/behavioural need. We strive to provide the means whereby students are able to ‘catch-up’ with their peers.
- Any students joining Year 7 with SEND needs are highlighted on transfer forms which are sent to the school SENDCO as well as Director of KS3 and the Inclusion team. These needs are assessed and visits are then arranged to liaise with Year 6 staff and Primary school SENDCO as appropriate. Extra visits may be organised and arrangements made to meet the needs of the students prior to starting in September.
- In year admissions are similarly assessed. Before a student is admitted with SEN all needs are assessed and suitable provision made. No student will start until all information has been assessed to meet the needs of the student
