Special Needs & Disabilities

Our experienced and professional team of teaching assistants work under the direction of the SENDCO and Deputy SENDCO at the Olney Campus and Assistant SENDCO at the Newport Pagnell Campus to provide a comprehensive package of support which addresses a range of Special Educational Needs. The support for your child is personalised to fit their needs, in consultation with our specialist TAs, teaching staff, parents and outside agencies. We believe that the key to effective support is engaging the student and allowing them to target the areas in which they need support. Together with the school’s pastoral team, we plan, do and review the support in place to ensure we provide for your child at every Key Stage, academically and socially.

Special Needs Co-ordinator - Louisa Mellor

We have a total of 19 teaching assistants working with students with special needs across the dual campus. Some are full time, some are part time and all are trained. Keyworkers at both campuses specialise in supporting students with Behaviour/Social/Emotional difficulties, ASD/Communication difficulties, Maths and Literacy difficulties as well as the support in Curriculum areas such as DT, Science and Vocational subjects.
