About the school

  • Long description:

    The Support for Learning Department provides outstanding support to students at Felstedwith SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) in order for them to be suitably challenged and fulfil their potential in a safe environment. 

    How do we do this?

    We provide in class support where appropriate.
    We teach in small groups of 3 or 4. Year 9 have lessons instead of studying a second Modern Foreign Language (4 lessons a fortnight). Year 10/11 opt for SfL and take one less GCSE (6 lessons a fortnight). Sixth Form have 4 individual lessons a fortnight with a specialist teacher. These lessons incur an additional charge.
    We undertake psychometric testing to assess students for access arrangements for public examinations. This mainly involves extra time for those who qualify under the JCQ regulations.
    We liaise with outside agencies where necessary.
    We write IEPs (Individual Education Plans) for those students who have SfL lessons.
    We provide prep support on a Tuesday and Thursday evening between 7.00-8.30pm in the SfL Department. We are also open at lunchtimes.
    We liaise with parents and teachers on a regular basis. Parents are invited in each term for a meeting to discuss their child’s progress. Tutors and Housemasters or Housemistresses are invited to these meetings too.
