Stopsley is an inclusive school and the Learning Support team works in collaboration with other departments in the school to offer support to students with SEND.
As a school we are committed to the belief that every child is an individual who brings something special to the school community. All students, regardless of ability, background or ethnicity, have the right to participate in and enjoy all aspects of school life, and have the opportunity to meet their full potential.
The Learning Support Faculty is led by the SENCo, Mrs Gill Laskey. We have a team of Teaching Assistants with training and experience of supporting students with a variety of needs such as Autism, Speech, Language and Communication Difficulties, Visual and Hearing Impairments, Down Syndrome and Dyslexia.
Our aim, as far as possible, is to support student learning in their timetabled lessons and to enable access to a full and varied curriculum. In Key Stage 3, all students are offered a wide-ranging curriculum including modern foreign languages. In Key Stage 4, there is a guided options process which allows a greater personalisation of the curriculum.
