Special Educational Needs
At Berwick Middle School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority and Health Professionals to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
We have created the ‘Hub’, a base in school where intervention, individual and group support takes place and this room is staffed throughout the day, including break and lunchtimes, ensuring that pupils always have somewhere to go if they need it.
At Berwick Middle School we have two Learning Mentors. Mrs Middlemist and Miss Patterson offer support and guidance to pupils who require additional support in order to reach their full potential or access the whole curriculum. Learning Mentors work with pupils on a one-to-one or group basis and will listen, motivate, encourage and facilitate their learning.
The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact me:
