Good Progress for All

Inclusion

Mrs Simpson

Welcome to the Inclusion Faculty at New College Leicester.

Aims

In line with the principles of the Special Education Needs code of practice 2014, we aim as a college to provide students with additional/or differentiated support in order to enable them to access the curriculum and make progress.

We work closely with subject areas and offer small group intervention in English, Maths and Science.

Students with the greatest need work in small groups on the Read, Write Inc literacy programme. We also offer the Better Reading Partnership (BWRP) provided by both skilled Teaching Assistants, subject teachers, administration staff and volunteer readers. (If you wish to become a volunteer please contact Ms Edel Concannon for more information on 0116 231 8500).

Miss Mayes

Staff within the Inclusion Faculty offer support within classes as well as providing 1:1 support and small group intervention. We believe in working closely with subject areas, students and parents/carers to ensure progress and achievement for all. Student progress is discussed twice a year with parents/carers through SEN review meetings and once a year, informally by telephone. However, if the need arises, we actively encourage parents/carers to contact us at the college regarding any concerns they may have with their son/daughters education. As a faculty we monitor the academic progress of all students on the SEN register half termly using subject teachers assessment data.

The Inclusion Faculty maintain positive communication and relationships with various professional bodies including:

  • Educational Psychology Service (EPS)
  • Complex Learning, Interaction and Communication Support Team (CLCI – formally LAST)
  • Leicester Partnership School & Federation Partnership Outreach Placements Team
  • Hearing and Visual Impairment Team
  • Child Health Services such as CAMHs
  • The Hospital School
  • Youth Offending Team (YOS)
