Le Rocquier School is committed to offering an inclusive education to all our students. Our first approach is to provide high quality first teaching, enabling all students to achieve, no matter their ability or starting point.
To support students with additional needs, we have a Special Educational Needs team in school, lead by our SENDCo, Mr Iain Nerac. Alongside him are our Teaching Assistants, who help support learning both in the classroom and in our dedicated support rooms.
Le Rocquier School is proud to be the designated secondary school for children with hearing impairment and has a well-established Additional Resourced Centre (ARC) fit for this purpose. Our classrooms are fitted with sound field technology, to fully include students with hearing impairment into all lessons.
We offer a wide range of curriculum options at GCSE, suitable for learners of all ability. This includes traditional GCSE courses, vocational courses (such as Food and Nutrition, and construction) and life-skill based courses, such as ASDAN and Princes Trust.
Beyond the classroom, we offer support for Mental Health and Wellbeing, via
- Our ELSAs (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants),
- Our Education Welfare Officer, Mrs. Devereux
- The Cove, a nurture provision for those needing more intense SEMH support
- Our School Based Counsellor, Mrs. Pryor.
If you feel your child needs further support, whether in lessons or beyond, please contact their form teacher or Head of Year in the first instance.
