Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs

The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Department is committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students to enable them to have every opportunity to reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. This is achieved by working in partnership with parents, students, teaching staff and external agencies.

Students' SEN needs are met individually and appropriate support put in place to meet their needs. We assess students to ensure examinations are accessible to all students regardless of their disability and appropriate modifications are put in place.

If you have any questions about the support your child is currently receiving, or you have any concerns that your child may have an SEN need contact the school.

We welcome visits to the school from prospective parents; contact the school to discuss your child’s SEN needs and the support we offer.

Meet and Greet Event : Monday 19th February 2024 11.30am to 3pm

In line with parent feedback, we are hosting a second Meet & Greet event, arranged to include a training course entitled Understanding Anxiety, that is being provided by the Autism Education Trust via Bucks Council. The training module is designed to help gain an understanding of anxiety in children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), though we would welcome all parents to participate.

Although the training is predominately aimed at providing strategies for staff to use within school, we hope that this will be of benefit to parents as it covers how anxiety can be expressed, as well as a toolbox of approaches to reduce anxiety and its associated triggers. We hope that this will support a more cohesive use of vocabulary and strategies between school and home. Lunch will be included.

Please see the poster below for more details and remember to register by emailing specialneeds@burnhamgrammar.org.uk by 8th February to secure your place.
