Description

The school works to recognise and realise the potential of every student in our community.
Provision for students with Additional Needs includes both ‘Gifted and Talented’ students and those with Special Educational Needs and fits squarely within this mission. Meeting the needs of students with Additional Needs (AN) is a part of ensuring the entitlement of all students to an appropriate education.

Admission criteria and how pupils access specialist provision (start of school year or mid-year)

Students who enter the school with a previously identified SEN are added to the SEN register on entry to the school. They will have an initial meeting with the SENCo within their first term at AHS to determine any ongoing needs for provision. Teachers refer students to the AN coordinator for SEN assessment if they feel they are displaying characteristics of a particular SEN or if they are concerned about their progress in a specific area. All of the teachers involved with that student are then consulted. If there is considerable and significant evidence from more than one teacher of concern the ANCo contacts the pupil’s parents to gain permission to offer support to the student. This might subsequently be followed by an assessment. Assessments may be carried out by the ANCo or another qualified professional. It is important to be mindful, when deciding whether or not to assess a student, of the JCQ requirements with regard to Access Arrangements in exams as discussed below. In some cases this might necessitate a delay in the assessment process. A published process for determining a student’s individual needs is available to staff and parents.
