SEN Information Report
At Kings Hill School we pride ourselves on being an inclusive environment; welcoming children with a range of needs and disabilities. We strive to ensure our classrooms cater for all need types through outstanding teaching and informed methods that enable all children to succeed academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
In order to ensure our everyday classroom practice is as inclusive as possible we welcome suggestions and recommendations from outside agencies, with whom we work closely. We are also readily available to parents to discuss any concern is that they may have even before a child starts school. We run a range of interventions and support groups which are closely monitored to ensure they have are making an impact on a child’s learning and improving their level of progress.
At Kings Hill School we believe everyone plays a part in a child’s development and work tirelessly alongside parents, children and other agencies to make sure we do everything we can to remove barriers to learning and enable every child to reach their full potential.
The Head of Inclusion
The Head of Inclusion is Mrs Georgette Williams who has worked within Special Needs for over twelve years. As well as her work as a class teacher and then as a SENCO and member of management she has also worked for the Specialist Teaching Service; visiting other schools to advise them on how best to support complex children. This role has been invaluable to her management of the children and their support within Kings Hill School.
Mrs Williams is closely supported by Mrs Crowe, a SEN assistant and TA with a wide knowledge of SEND and a specific specialism in Speech and Language. The school also employs a large number of Teaching Assistants, each of whom have a specific specialism and are highly trained through Ridge View special school and other local organisations.
Regular training for our TAs is a high priority and often our expertise in SEND is recognised by the local authority.
