The success of our SEND provision

The following testimonials demonstrate some of the feedback we have received from Ofsted and from parents about the SEND provision across our Laurus Trust schools. 

Pupils and students, including those who are disadvantaged and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), benefit from an ambitious and wide-ranging curriculum. Subject curriculums ensure equal opportunity for all pupils to learn a rich body of important subject knowledge. 

Staff carefully identify the specific needs of pupils with SEND. They ensure that these pupils are supported effectively in their lessons. Specialist staff provide expert additional support for pupils who need it. 

Ofsted Inspection Report, Hazel Grove High School, January 2022

Leaders work diligently with external agencies and SEND experts to identify the needs of pupils with SEND. Teachers are trained well and are suitably informed of these pupils’ individual learning needs. This enables teachers to use support plans effectively in the classroom. Pupils with SEND benefit from well-considered programmes of support. They make the same exceptional progress through the curriculum as others in the school.

The staff are amazing and all of his needs have been met. I am able to contact the SEND Team, and someone will contact me. My child feels very safe at school, he receives all the support he needs.
