SEND Support

We work extremely hard to make sure all our students achieve their individual educational potential. We employ a dedicated team of specialists to look after the needs of the children in our care.

It is testament to the close relationship we have with our feeder primary schools and the staff at Co-op Academy Swinton, that the children who have learning problems are identified early in their school career. To support this, we have a dedicated Student Support Faculty who, under the guidance of experienced specialists, provide extra help for our students who are identified as having learning problems, especially those in Year 7.

Students may be withdrawn from lessons either individually or in small groups for more individual help, or extra support may be provided in the subject lessons by our team of Teaching Assistants and Learning Mentors.

Our aim is to allow as many students as possible access to the full National Curriculum by providing appropriate support where needed. All courses and groupings are constructed to allow students to learn at their own pace and pay due regard to the equally important needs of all children from the most gifted to those who experience learning difficulties.

If you think your child may have Special Education Needs or you require additional information please contact Mr Dodd on: 0161 794 6215

Offering extra support for our students is our Nurture provision. Our Nurture Groups are small classes for children with identified needs. These may be students who feel insecure in school or who are in need of more attention than can be provided in a mainstream class.
