At South Wigston High School we are committed to offering an inclusive education to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students whatever their needs or abilities. We actively promote a whole school approach to meeting additional educational needs (SEN/D) in which all members of the school community have an understanding of their role in supporting students across the school. The school has an experienced and well-trained team of staff who offer a range of support both in class and in small group interventions.
What we do
Students are helped to achieve their potential in a variety of ways: high quality teaching, being assisted in lessons by Learning Support Assistants; having differentiated work; opportunities to work in a small group with a specific focus on reading, writing or spelling; intensive, targeted work overseen by an Intervention Support Mentor. As well as this, we support the development of social skills, comprehension, working memory, fine motor skills and emotional health. At Key Stage 4 we can offer additional provision such as work related learning and entry level qualifications which can lead to successful placements and further education at college. Those with more complex needs may also be referred to agencies such as the School Counsellor, Educational Psychology Service or health services, with parental permission.
