Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

The most recent OFSTED report in January 2019 noted that for pupils with SEND at  Countess Wear rigorous monitoring of teaching and additional support secures good outcomes for pupils from their starting points. Provision is well organised; high-quality tracking of pupils’ progress and well-focused support means that pupils with SEND make the progress they need to. 

Pupils in the school’s special resource provision (Sensory Hub) are well supported to ensure that they can access learning in the mainstream classrooms. Adults provide specific, targeted intervention for individual pupils to accelerate their progress and as a result pupils from the base make good progress from their starting points.
