What is the provision for special educational needs at the school?
Smithdon High School has access to support from a number of different services.
Reasonable adjustments are made to cater for the needs of individual children and we have a variety of programmes to boost and support pupils if necessary.
In addition, we employ Learning Support Assistants, who deliver interventions within the provision map co-ordinated by the SENDCo.
Additional support for learning
We use a range of individual and group programmes to assist learners according to their needs.
Any specific or physical requirements will be assessed individually and equipment will be provided, where possible, to meet those needs with the help of the Local Authority SEND services.
All our buildings are wheelchair accessible and we have a number of disabled facilities within school, ranging from toilet facilities to parking bays.
We have a number of co-curricular activities that take place at Smithdon High School, ranging from after school clubs to residential trips abroad, and we believe that all learners should have the same opportunity to access co-curricular activities.
The school is committed to making reasonable adjustments for all clubs and activities to ensure participation for all so that every young person is included in every aspect of school life. We, therefore, undertake risk assessments for all our pupils in conjunction with the school trip leader, parents, and any outside agency where appropriate
