Special Educational Needs
Provision for pupils with special educational needs is a matter for the school as a whole. All teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs.’ (DfES 2001: 59)
Here at Bodmin College we are an inclusive college. We provide support for all students who experience a barrier to their learning and in particular to those who may have a specific learning difficulty or intellectual disability. We are committed to ensuring that all students are offered full access to the curriculum and are able to enjoy all the resources and opportunities available at the college.
The SEN team comprises of specialist teachers, Higher Level Teaching Assistants and teaching assistants. We provide:
- Training for the whole staff to ensure that all teachers have the required level of awareness and knowledge to include students and to differentiate the learning opportunities for all abilities
