Learning Support

Education is not a problem. Education is an opportunity.
Lyndon Johnson.

We have an outstanding team of SEN specialists at OBH ready to help support the needs of any of our pupils, led by a well-qualified and highly experienced full-time SENCO .

If a child has additional support needs, we will do all we can to meet those individual needs using the most up to date resources and practices. We fully comply with the requirements as set out in the SEN Code of Practice in providing for children with any additional support needs. Our tracking and monitoring processes (including annual CAT4 testing for all pupils in Years 3 to 8) ensure that all pupils’ academic progress is regularly monitored against national benchmarks. All our teaching staff receive regular CPD training focussing on how best to support children with additional needs and how to look out for individuals who may find particular aspects of learning difficult.
