Learning Support

Manor High school welcomes students with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Central to our school’s philosophy is the importance of the inclusive nature of our school community.  We appreciate the importance of ALL our students taking an active part in a curriculum which aims to fully develop their intellectual, social, emotional, aesthetic, moral and physical capabilities.

Every student at Manor High School has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects as well as GCSE and/or appropriate vocational subjects.  As a school we are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students through a combination of quality first teaching and appropriate interventions where necessary.

Miss Siobhan Long is our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo). She liaises closely with all staff and other external agencies in order to support our most vulnerable students and those who have additional needs. Miss Long leads a team of very experienced Learning Support Assistants (LSAs), who work with class teachers to ensure that work is differentiated and accessible for all of our students. The parents of those students with an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) or Statement of Educational Need are invited into school frequently and we are available to the parents of any child who feels that support may be needed.
