Inclusion Faculty

Faculty Mission Statement

The Inclusion Faculty is responsible for promoting social and academic inclusion within the school, allowing every student to maximise their potential.

The Inclusion Faculty support students who have special educational needs and/or English as an additional language.


Special Educational Needs

The majority of support for students with special educational needs is delivered by teaching assistants within the mainstream classroom. However, some students have significant needs which means they benefit from being in one of our support classes. These classes have a maximum of 12 students, with a high level of additional adult support.

In addition to our support classes and teaching assistant support, we deliver the following interventions where appropriate:-

The Dockside Reading Scheme – designed for KS3 struggling readers

Corrective Reading – designed for students who have difficulties with decoding and/or comprehension of text

IDL – a computer program designed for students with dyslexia

Some of our students have specific needs which cannot be met by a teacher or teaching assistant. Therefore, we have the following professionals in school who may work with students with SEN:-

Dr Bernice George – Educational Psychologist

Kirsty Marshall – Clinical Psychologist

Nicola Millard – Emotional Health and Well-being Practitioner

Caroline Ritson – Specific Learning Difficulties Teacher

Clare Vaughan – Speech Therapist


The SEN faculty:-

Mrs Farr: SENCO

Ms K Horne: Acting SENCO

Ms Angela Lord: SEN Administrator



EAL (English as an Additional Language) is a subject for students whose first language is not English. Students learn and improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the English language. They also develop vocabulary and grammar which is useful for everyday communication and essential for all school subjects.

At KS3, students attend EAL classes for two or three lessons a week.

At KS4, students study EAL as one of their options.

At the end of Year 11 all EAL students take an exam, Edexcel ESOL Skills for Life, and are entered at the level which suits them best: Entry 1 , Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1 or Level 2.

In all Years EAL students are supported in mainstream classes by the TAs (teaching assistants)
