Special Educational Needs

At Newent Community School and Sixth Form Centre we:

  • Ensure that students learn and interact in a caring, happy, safe and secure environment
  • Make every effort to ensure equality of educational access and opportunity
  • Provide maximum opportunity to develop and reach individual potential academically, socially and personally
  • Encourage every student to develop their skills of communication
  • Challenge students to become as independent as possible
  • Listen to, and involve students, family/carers and other professionals in decision making
  • Understand the importance of friendships and encourage respectful, trusting relationships throughout the school
  • Facilitate the inclusion of all students, including those with Special Educational Need and/or Disability in the school curriculum, sports and activities such as visits and residential trips
  • Empower students to be an individual

Our fundamental focus is on quality first teaching and learning in the classroom. However, we recognise that at some point some students also require additional support and intervention.

We have provided two downloadable documents for your reference:

A guide for Parents and Carers which has been produced by the DfE
