The school employs a full-time Individual Needs Coordinator who works across the school.
The Individual Needs Coordinator identifies and supports children in overcoming barriers to their learning and to help these students reach their full potential.
Whether academic, social, emotional or behavioural, the Individual Needs Coordinator will provide the time, support and guidance required to ensure that every child thrives.
The Individual Needs Teacher also provides an important point of connection for families as we work together to achieve a happy and healthy work-life balance.
Special Educational Needs Support
The School works in accordance with the 2015 SEN Code of Practice to adopt a graduated response to a student’s individual needs. This approach recognises that there is a continuum of SEN and, where necessary, we bring increasing range of strategies and specialist expertise into effect in order to support and address the difficulties that a student may be experiencing.
Even before a student arrives at Shrewsbury, our assessment and admissions procedures seek to identify any special learning support that a student may need once they are at the school. A process of continual monitoring and assessment of our current students also seeks to identify any emerging issues that were not apparent at the assessment stage, and to devise action plans and additional support measures as appropriate.
It is important that parents are transparent with the School at the point of application to ensure that staff are in the best possible position to ensure that every child is well catered for upon arrival.
