Glenesk is sympathetic to children with learning difficulties and has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator who is responsible for ensuring that all children receive extra support should it be deemed necessary. This support is either given individually or within the classroom in small groups.
Special needs provision is planned, monitored and reviewed by the Special Needs Co-ordinator, who reports to the Senior Leadership Team. The SENCO and support staff work closely with class teachers through meetings and written communication about pupils as part of the school’s assessment procedures, to ensure that learning is differentiated according to the needs of the pupil. The class or form teacher and the SENCO will discuss provision to ensure that the pupil’s access to the wider curriculum is not unduly affected by additional support provision.
At Glenesk, we also cater for able and gifted children and ensure they receive challenging and stimulating experiences according to their individual needs.
