Springwood High School has access to support from a number of different services.

Reasonable adjustments are made to cater for the needs of individual children, and we have a variety of programmes to boost and support pupils if necessary.

In addition, we employ Teaching Assistants, who deliver interventions and provide support within the Provision Map including in-class support, co-ordinated by the SENDCo.

We have a team of Teaching Assistants who are subject-based, those who work with specific pupils to provide consistent support and some who provide support across the curriculum with a range of classes.

For all pupils with Special Educational Needs, our approach is that there is enhanced access to the teacher in lessons rather than their needs being supported solely by a Teaching Assistant, and we aim to promote independence for all students.
