Good Progress for All


Welcome to the Inclusion Faculty at New College Leicester.

All Staff at New College Leicester acknowledge that some of our students may have specific needs that could affect their progress and/or social and emotional needs. In line with our Health & Wellbeing strategy we aim to support all students In order for them to achieve their potential. We have a committed team of teachers and teaching assistants trained to support students across the college. In acknowledgement of this we have recently been awarded the SENDIAS award recognising outstanding SEND provision and also hold the Inclusion Quality Mark as a centre of excellence.

The Inclusion team is made up of a team of experienced staff who provide a range of support and intervention for students including in class support, small group work and individual one-to-one support where applicable. We believe in working closely with subject areas, students, parents/carers and external agencies to ensure progress and achievement for all. All students and parents/carers of students on the SEND register are invited to have a formal review, termly, with a member of the Inclusion team.

To ensure students on the SEND register have a smooth and worry free transition from Primary to Secondary school, we work closely with our feeder primary schools to gain a clear picture of students needs and also offer additional transition visits and support if required.

The Director for Inclusion/SENDCo at New College Leicester is Mrs Karen Simpson who can be contacted on 0116 231 8513 or email
