The Support for Learning Department at Taylor High School want all children and young people to be able to get the most from the learning opportunities which are available to them, so that they can realise their full potential, in learning, in work, and in life. An important part of our approach is the recognition that all children and young people are different. To enable them to reach their full potential some will need additional support. Support may be needed for any reason, and for short or long term periods determined by the individual learning needs of the child or young person. Our Key duties are to identify, make provision for, and review provision for the additional support needs of children and young people for whose education we are responsible. We aim to work to plan and make joint provision for children and young people with complex or multiple additional support needs. Where their needs are significant, require support from education and another partner agency, and will last more than one year, children and young people may have a statutory co-ordinated support plan to bring together all of the support to be provided to meet their learning needs.
In short we aim to:
to ensure the earliest possible needs identification for any child
to act upon needs identification in a supportive and effective manner in order to promote inclusion and enable each child to reach their potential
to provide support via relevant learning support staff, teaching staff, programmes of work or outside agencies
to ensure effective communication and proper consultation exists between school, pupils, parents and other relevant agencies
to maintain coherent, progressive records of learning support provision and to carry out regular reviews of pupil progress
Some young people may require targeted support to help meet their educational needs.
