At Aldworth School we are committed to giving all of our students every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards and become equipped for life by taking account of students’ varied life experiences and needs. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and have high expectations for all children, reminding them how important it is for them to ‘go further’. We strive to be a fully inclusive school, and actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude students. The achievements, attitudes and wellbeing of all our students matter.
Students at Aldworth School have a range of difficulties including Communication and Interaction; Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties and Sensory or Physical difficulties. Within the school we cater for a wide variety of special needs and all students are taught in mainstream classes. We add support into classes rather than removing students from lessons wherever possible.
The SENDCo works closely with families to ensure that all students are able to access the most appropriate support for their needs. If you are unhappy with the level of support your child is receiving please contact the SENDCo directly to discuss your concerns.
The School is committed to resolving any concerns as quickly and as effectively as possible. If you still have concerns following a discussion with the SENDCo you can request a copy of the complaints procedure. The full procedure is detailed in the School Complaints Policy (available on request).
