Special Educational Needs and Disability

At the Norton Knatchbull School we cater for all types of additional and special educational needs - defined as any type of barrier to learning which might affect a child’s ability to access the curriculum.

We work closely with the primary schools to ensure that information about any of these needs is transferred with the student. This enables us to plan ahead to meet individual needs as required.

If an additional or special need is identified we work quickly to ensure that we help the student in every way possible. This includes the use of outside agencies when appropriate. We have a dedicated team of Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) who specialise in different areas, to enable the AEN Department to offer support in a variety of ways.

We monitor our students and change our provision accordingly to ensure that our students make the best possible progress.  Teaching staff are provided with regular updates on students and have access to a wide range of resources allowing them to support students through Quality First teaching.
