The SEND Department

The SEND Department

The SEND department is led by Miss Elishia Meade the Special Needs Coordinator.  The team is made up of an Assistant SENCO and 4 exceptional Learning Support Assistants with many years of experience and specialisms in different subjects.
 Aim of the SEND Department
The aim of the department and of the whole school is to help remove barriers to learning and to enable students to access the curriculum. We aim to create a place of learning where every young person can be happy, successful, healthy and safe and contribute to the communities in which they live, learn and play. Learning Support Assistants
The Learning Support Assistants provide in-class support for pupils with Special educational needs.  In addition, they also deliver workshops to those that need additional intervention.  Students are assessed when they start school and then appropriate support can be put in place to address any needs. It is our mission to devise an individual learning plan for each student in our care to ensure they have full access to the curriculum and wider learning and enrichment opportunities that are part of student life at Heyford Park Free School.
 
Facilities
When starting school in year 7, all classes will have a Learning Support Assistant assigned. Transition into secondary school can be a daunting time and difficult for so many reasons. A Learning Support Assistant is ‘a constant’ in changing times and will be at hand to help all year 7 students establish their routine at Heyford Park Free School. The Learning Support Assistants will also use this assignment to assess individuals so that Individual Learning Profiles can be devised where special education needs become apparent.
There are intervention rooms for withdrawal lessons and workshops and quiet spaces for ‘timeout’.  A homework workshop also runs after school on Fridays and are staffed by Learning Support Assistants.
