At Colyton Grammar School all students are encouraged and supported to pursue excellence and to study to the best of their ability. We want all students to be able to experience a feeling of success and achievement. All teachers are required to develop and adapt strategies which allow them to respond to a wide range of student needs.
The performance of all students is monitored on a regular basis, both within departments and across all subjects. The SEND team liaise closely with the Pastoral team and Subject Departments. Appropriate support is identified for specific learning needs.
Where a student's learning requires a specific programme of support, parents are consulted. Each student with an Education, Health and Care Plan has a programme devised in liaison with support services and parents, and the programme is reviewed annually.
It is the policy of the Board of Trustees that students with an Education, Health and Care Plan should be supported to at least the level of the financial grant received.(is this still the case?)
Our Special Educational Needs Policy and Information Report further outlines information with regards to implementation of our approach.
ACCESS FOR DISABLED STUDENTS
The Accessibility Report is considered annually within the context of planning any new Capital Work. Some major issues remain, particularly in relation to the original school buildings and resolution will require the support of Devon Local Authority. The school is committed to equal access for all students and where appropriate, entrance tests are modified. The Accessibility Plan is available in a printed format, and can be downloaded in the links below.
