We want all girls to receive the very best possible education

Our aim is to help each and every pupil to develop to their full potential, bearing in mind their individual needs and abilities. We recognise, however, that all children are different and may have very different needs.

    The four broad areas of need are:
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Sensory/ Physical Need
  • or a combination of these needs.


The school operates a graduated approach to the identification of students with Special Educational Needs and Disability. The subject teachers will use a four step model; Assess, Plan, Do, Review, taking into account the views of the student and their parents. Evidence of individual performance based on learning outcomes will lead to intervention being put in place. If the student requires further additional intervention the SENDCO will observe lessons and give advices. Where necessary, parents and students will be invited to have a consultation with the Educational Psychologist.

Parents are contacted early in their daughter's life in Broughton Hall and their needs are discussed with the SENDCO and any outside agencies which already have an involvement with a pupil. There are Annual Reviews for pupils with Education and Health Care Plans. Students identified as having Special Educational Needs and/or Disability have a Pupil Passport for all members of staff to access and plan work accordingly.

Lexia is a piece of software that is recommended by the British Dyslexia Association to support students with literacy difficulties. Symphony Maths is used to support students who have difficulties in numeracy. This operates in Years 7 & 8. Students receive further Literacy and Numeracy intervention from Year 7 onwards from specialist teachers.

Students are assessed for special access arrangements at the beginning of Year 10 by the SENDCO.  All students are able to attend homework club Tuesday-Thursday every week from 3.10pm-5.15pm where they have access to computers and staff for support.

Sixth Form students who have been identified as having Special Educational Needs and/or Disability have continued special access arrangements in all internal and external examinations.
