SEN & Vulnerable Students

A student is seen to have SEN if they require support that goes beyond what is typically required by students to access the curriculum. Most students will have their needs met through Quality First Teaching. Teachers at the College are expected to use differentiated resources to challenge and meet the needs of students. All staff (as demonstrated in the Teacher Portfolio) have an excellent understanding of the needs of all of their students. Challenging targets are set throughout the year and students, through resources and teaching, will have their needs met and be suitably challenged.

Some students do require extra support. These students are identified in their High Schools and as a result of the transition process; information is collated and passed to College teachers as well as being shared with parents. Transition IEPs are produced. The support for students is reviewed throughout the year as the College uses a graduated SEN approach of ASSESS, PLAN, DO, and REVIEW. As outlined in the 2014 Code of Practice, parents can expect to be informed about their child’s progress three times a year through Data Snapshots, SEN reviews and Parent Days.


The Learning Development Department at Beauchamp Community College

The Learning Development Department (LDD) at Beauchamp College consists of a SENCO, two HLTAs and approximately 12 learning support assistants. There is also a Hearing Impaired Unit attached to the College.

The SEND department, led by the SENCO, coordinates the needs of SEND students from induction until they leave. We ensure a smooth transition from primary school until they continue to KS4 and for some students, into KS5.  Student needs are considered on an individual basis and their specific needs are quickly paired to the appropriate support and provision. The Learning Development Team consists of The SENCO, assistant SENCO, Two higher level teaching assistants and 18 teaching assistants. The SENCO actively engages in up to date training to share best practice and help deliver staff CPD. Staff also have access to current research and teaching strategies.  The LDD team work with a number of outside agencies to support the needs of students. In-service training of all staff in relation to special educational needs will remain a priority for Beauchamp College.
