Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

outdoor theatre tripSaint Aidan’s maintains a strong commitment to Special Educational Needs. Additional support is provided for all students with learning or social needs to enable them to achieve their full potential in school.

A team of well qualified, experienced staff offer specialist support to ensure all students become confident, independent learners. For the majority, support is provided for reading and writing and those learning skills necessary to achieve in all subjects. Individual mentoring and support for social needs is also a great strength of the team. 

Our Achievement Room is a warm, welcoming environment. Students can use a wide range of resources to ensure high-quality, individualised learning. Daily lunchtime clubs also offer support with homework and social needs.

All students with special needs have a Personal Learning Plan, involving regular monitoring and review. External professional agencies are invited into school to support individual needs and regular liaison with parents or carers is encouraged to ensure successful progress.

We aim to prepare our students to enter the adult world secure in their own worth and with respect for and understanding of others.
