Special Educational Needs and Disability
At every opportunity we aim to raise awareness of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) with both staff and students in order to foster a shared understanding and acceptance of diversity within our school.
We strive to ensure that all students with SEND make exceptional progress, achieve their personal best and are included at every level of school life.
Quality First Teaching for SEND Students
Quality First Teaching (QFT) is the first step in responding to students who may have SEND at Tottington High School. Teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of all students in their class, including where students access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff. QFT is achieved through appropriately differentiated learning activities and/or teaching strategies which carefully consider the individual learning needs of every student.
SEND Inclusion Team
The SEND Inclusion Team at Tottington High School is part of a whole school graduated response to SEND. The team supports a range of students identified as requiring SEND Support in school, in addition to those students who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). We are based in the area known as our THRIVE Provision.
The SEND Inclusion Team at Tottington High School is currently led and managed by Mrs Benigno (Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion).
Our SEND Advisor and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Gale.
As a team we are here to provide advice, guidance and support to students, staff and parents.
