The aim of the faculty is to support and encourage pupils to feel positively about themselves and their learning, enabling them to achieve their potential whilst becoming independent learners.
Welcome to our SEN pages. We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which Bingley Grammar is able to support SEN students to reach their full potential.
The underlying ethos of Bingley Grammar School is one of inclusion. All students have full access to the curriculum in all Key Stages.
Pupils' special needs are met in accordance with the principles and procedures laid down in the SEN Code of Practice. These needs are initially identified during liaison meetings with our feeder schools and transitional programmes are held in the summer term. Assessments take place in September, and thereafter monitoring of provision and progress occurs throughout a student's school career.
For those students with more specific special education needs our Achievement Centre helps to build the bridges to learning. This bridge building has allowed our SEN students to make outstanding progress with the majority going on the achieve 5A*-C grade GCSEs in a variety of both traditional and vocational subjects. The school's SEN policy is at the heart of strategic planning and development. The school believes in the principles of entitlement and inclusion and therefore wants all pupils to engage in a full curriculum. The Achievement Centre offers a wide variety of provision to pupils. Those with specific learning difficulties are offered individual or small group withdrawal from low priority subjects, for literacy, numeracy and speech and language.
Other pupils are offered in-class support or a combination of both withdrawal and support in-class. At the heart of the provision is the Achievement Centre whose innovative approach has seen a leading role in the development of Irlens support and the growing use of ICT to scaffold learning.
As Bingley Grammar School continues to develop in many areas, curriculum development will always take SEN into consideration. With many years' experience behind it, our reputation for provision for SEN pupils is well established. But the school is not content to rest on its laurels and will always strive to build on its success.
