Student Support & SENDCO

At Stone Lodge School we support and value the abilities of ALL of our students.  We strongly believe that it is our duty to provide equal opportunities for every young person in our care and a safe and fully equipped learning environment, which caters to the needs of every student as an individual. We are committed to inclusion within the school curriculum and participation in all aspects of school life.

Stone Lodge School adopts a ‘holistic approach’ to special educational needs. All staff work to ensure inclusion of all students. We are committed to ensuring that students with special educational needs can fulfil their potential and achieve optimal educational outcomes through high quality teaching and learning.  We ensure that all teachers and support staff who work with our SEND students are aware of the support to be provided and the teaching approaches to be used and work collaboratively to ensure SEND students can achieve their potential.
