Individual Educational Needs
Every girl is treated as an individual. Special individual needs include: those of the exceptionally able; mild learning difficulties; physical difficulties; those of girls whose religious or other commitments require special consideration.
Two specialist co-ordinators work across the age ranges (4 – 11, 11 – 18), and closely with the pastoral heads and senior management. There are on-going observations by subject staff of year groups, the feedback from which is followed up by the specialist staff. Girls with known medical conditions are on a special medical register and the school nurse holds individual medical plans. All staff are expected to familiarise themselves with girls’ needs on a need-to-know basis. Special provision is made for those who need to miss school, or fast, for religious reasons.
