Special Educational Needs

At Emmanuel we are keen to ensure that all students receive the best possible education. We work hard to accommodate the needs of all individuals, and plan carefully to incorporate necessary adjustments and interventions, so that every student can reach their full potential.

SEN may be related to learning and cognition; speech, language and communication; social, emotional and mental health; or physical and sensory conditions. In all cases, the specific needs of students are identified in collaboration with staff, parents and specialist agencies, and the appropriate provision is then planned, implemented and reviewed. This tailored provision can come in many forms, including in-class support, daily organisational and emotional support, therapeutic and academic interventions, and practical adaptations.

We have two core facilities to reach the varied needs of our students; Learning Support and Student SupportLearning Support is managed directly by our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Suzannah Diamantis, who is responsible for the leadership and management for SEND provision across the school. Student Support is led by Julian Bennett (Student Support Manager) with regular input from our SENCO. Both of these facilities are staffed with specialist teams to create individual programmes of support for our students.
