How might my child be supported?
Children are offered additional support for a variety of reasons. They may demonstrate gaps in their knowledge, through absence for example, or find it difficult to pick up new learning as quickly as their peers, for a variety of reasons.
They will be given support through small group or 1-1 interventions and/or a variety of approaches depending on your child's identified needs. We will draw support from a number of services, information and guidance we have available to us.
We understand that there will be some children who require additional support and, therefore, may be identified as having a special educational need. These children will be supported through use of our graduated approach in line with Wolverhampton City Council guidance. Further information for our families of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) may be found here:
If you have any questions with regards to this approach or the pathway to accessing this support at our school, please contact your class teacher. They will be able to support and advise you through this process on the outset.
Further information can be found on the school's Information Report 2023:
