Learning Support

We have a whole-school approach to meeting Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND); every teacher at Woldgate School is a teacher of pupils with SEND, and is responsible for the progress and development of all pupils in their classes. In addition the Learning Support Department is available to support pupils, their teachers and parents/carers at Lower and Upper School.

We can offer support in the following ways

  • Accurately identify pupils with special educational needs and disabilities and ensure that their needs are met as early as possible.
  • Advise the teaching staff on a graduated response to pupil need.
  • Provide in class support and access to other interventions.
  • Specialist assessments and mentoring.
  • Ensure exam access arrangements are in place for pupils with additional needs.
  • Referral to and liaison with external agencies and parents/carers.
  • Transition support for pupils going on to College, Sixth Form or other places of Further Education.
