Inclusion

SEN&D

Special educational needs and disability at TMA, also known as learning support department works with parents, carers, pupils and teaching staff to ensure that needs are met accordingly to the child’s individual needs within the secondary setting.  Following the Equality Act (2010), the Children and Families Act (2014) and the most recent Code of Practice (2015) we ensure that by working together we can support each child with SEN&D to reach their potential both as an academic student but also as a young person.

Further information can be found in the SEN&D page here: http://www.thomasmiddlecott.co.uk/s/local-offer 

 

Should you require further information for SEN&D in addition to the Local Offer please contact Ms Helen Quince (SENCO) on: hquince@thomasmiddlecott.co.uk

 

Pastoral Support

Pastoral care is led in year groups.  Working closely with the Progress Leaders, the Pastoral Officers are available for the concerns and issues that many children and young people struggle with.  A talk, time out, or mediation can all help a young person break the barrier that is emotionally stopping them from accessing learning.  Counselling referrals can be made as well as setting up Team around the Child (TAC) or Single Assessment support meetings via Early Help Assessments (EHA) can also be made via the pastoral team.

 

Attendance

Attendance to school is paramount.  With 95% attendance to school from all students at TMA, the work of the attendance officer means that the first barrier to learning is removed so that the student can access the lessons through attendance. Working closely with families and the students themselves, reasons for non-attendance can be established and support put into place to ensure access to learning is given.

*The government’s figure for persistent absence has changed and will soon be in force.  It has always been set that that the persistent absence was at 85% but from September 2015 this figure will be at 90% (which equates to 19 days off in an academic year).  This means that all pupils with their attendance falling below 90% will be classed as a persistent absence and will be dealt with according to school policy.*

 

The Reintegration Unit

The Reintegration Unit is a supportive environment to help student’s access learning when mainstream is a difficulty on a short term basis.  Offering mentoring, family support, small group work and small learning groups, The Bridge seeks to help students develop strategies to manage and cope with mainstream learning. Clubs and mentoring sessions are also run for students needing extra behaviour support but are able to access the classroom.

EAL

English as an Additional Language is the inclusive department that supports children in learning English as either their second or third language, so that they are able to access their lessons at Thomas Middlecott Academy.

Once a pupil starts at TMA they are assessed by one of our bi-lingual staff members to find out their ability in speaking, reading, writing and listening to the English language. Depending on their ability depends upon the level of hours support they have in either one to one or small group sessions ready to acquire the language.
