Young Women's Hub

Special Educational Needs at the Young Women’s Hub

SENCO - Emma Quartey

The school has a range of students with varying needs at the Young Women’s Hub. This may take the form of a specific moderate difficulty that is a barrier to their learning and may fall in one or more of the following areas:

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Sensory and/or Physical

Our aim is to remove all learning barriers for students to support them to make progress across the curriculum as well as in their personal development. Our small size means that we can ensure a fully personalised approach to all students. This means a personalised curriculum as well as tailored intervention. This may be 1:1 teaching assistant support outside of class, teaching assistant support in class, social skills groups, mentoring, Speech and Language support or specialised resources.

A key area of our work at the Hub is working closely with the parent/carer. We review the provision for students regularly and construct the Learning Passport with both the student and the family. We support parents/carers with their child’s needs through the expertise of the staff we have on the team which includes trained social workers and teachers, as well as through referrals to external agencies and work with multiagencies.
We are proud of our inclusive, personalised and nurturing approach for all students.
