The Learning Support Team prides itself on being a champion for pupils with additional needs, whatever these may be. The team make sure that any reasonable adjustments are made for children with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Meet the Team

Mrs. S Hampshaw

Co-ordinator (SENCO)

This team is managed by Mrs. S Hampshaw, SENCO who is the person you should contact if your child has any difficulty with learning. She teaches and also works with staff to make sure your child receives the right education and is happy across school. Mrs Hampshaw meets regularly with primary schools so knows about children who need some extra help before they arrive at Salendine Nook.

Mrs. A Quinlan

HLTA (Staff Manager)

Mrs. A Quinlan is our SEN Staff Manager who supports the team. She is often the person who contacts parents and arranges meetings. She deals with ‘the nuts and bolts’ of Special Needs and is able to help with any questions you might have. Some children are entitled to have support for the exams and Mrs Quinlan is responsible for making sure that this is in place.

Intervention Support at SNHS prides itself on being a champion for students who are in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding. The main focus of its work is to support students who are struggling to cope at school, particularly in terms if keeping up with the core subjects of Maths, English and Science.

We make sure that the students who are dropping behind in these areas are given support either in lessons or before and after school.

Everyone at Salendine Nook shares the same ambition for high quality support and outcomes for students with SEND, and everyone is clear what their role is in achieving this.

If you have any questions or wish to raise a concern, please contact Mrs. S Johnson, our Assistant Principal in charge of Inclusion at Salendine Nook.

The Governor at school with responsibility for Additional Needs is Mrs S Healey, who can be contacted via the school number.
