We provide a range of in-class support and small-group or individual withdrawal, depending on the student’s special educational needs and the learning to be covered.

Depending on the level of need in the school, small group or individual interventions may focus on a combination of the following:

  • Language and Communication
  • Vocabulary
  • Higher Order Language Skills
  • Literacy skills
  • Numeracy skills
  • Self-Regulation skills
  • Assertiveness
  • Counselling
  • Social Skills
  • Mentoring Program

We run KS3 and KS4 homework clubs several times a week. SEN and EAL students are encouraged to attend to ensure they are able to complete the work expected of them. Before and after school we have a program of addition support to ensure that all students make good progress.

If you have a particular concern about your son and special educational needs, please contact Ms Devlin via email at SEN@norlington.school.
