Snaith School SEND

Leaders have a good understanding of the needs of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, and monitor their progress carefully’ OFSTED 2017

Good levels of support are provided for vulnerable pupils, particularly for those with medical needs’ OFSTED 2017

Infinity plays a key role in school, supporting students with a variety of additional needs.  These needs can vary from academic challenges, such as difficulties with literacy or numeracy where additional support is provided through key interventions; social needs where they benefit from more structured support during their break and lunchtimes; and emotional needs where students may benefit from a 5 minute step out or in more significant cases, receive emotional literacy support.   

Students can also receive support with homework during break and lunchtime, or seek advice if they are struggling with anything in school. 

Students with medical needs can also access support, including physiotherapy led activities.

The Infinity team consists of teaching assistants (including an ELSA Trained L3 TA), a SEND team leader, Assistant SENDCo and SENDCo.    Teaching assistants deliver a number of literacy based interventions – including reading and spelling, as well as handwriting and social group interventions.   

The SEND Team leader is based within Infinity and is the first port of call for students seeking support.  

The Infinity Department is a busy and successful department at The Snaith School. The function of the department is to stretch and challenge pupils in their learning by providing them with the means to access the curriculum by removing any barriers to learning individuals may experience.

The Special Education Needs and Disability Co-ordinator for the school is Alison Walker.
