Inclusion and SEND

Meridian High school is committed to delivering a personalised education that ensures each student makes strong progress and meaningful life outcomes. 

Click Here to read our SEND Information Report

Staff at Meridian High School work to ensure that students’ needs are met in the mainstream classroom as much as possible.  Staff in the SEND department work  with teachers and other colleagues in all subjects to ensure that work set is adapted and appropriate. Staff are given strategies to support each individual student, providing materials and training to aid where necessary. Where more individualised support or teaching is required, this is usually led by an individual in the SEND department.

We also work closely with a range of professionals outside school to provide informed pastoral support and to support learning, based on students’ specific, individual needs.

Listening to children and young people, working with parents, and listening to their aspirations to achieve the most appropriate provision, is a key element in all our work.

If parents have concerns with their child’s support and academic progress, they are encouraged to talk, in the first instance to the child’s tutor or House leader.

Inclusion and Physical / Emotional wellbeing and resilience

The Learning Support Services (LSS) department provides behaviour and wellbeing support service to students across all year groups at MHS. The centre has the following aims and purpose:

  • To support emotional wellbeing and resilience and identify learning differences and barriers.
  • To reduce the number of fixed-term / permanent exclusions / students educated in off-site Alternative Provision and to improve students’ behaviour and progress.
  • To provide welfare / pastoral support to all students through personalised targeted support interventions.
  • To provide advice, support and training to all staff in relation to pastoral support, emotional wellbeing and behaviour management.

All students identified and referred receive a 1:1 support and advice session during their stay. This is used to determine the support package required.  Individuals are assessed in an initial 1:1 session or through LSS department meetings to determine an ongoing programme of support.

Support takes the form of one or more of the following:

In line with the 2014 Department for Education Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice: 0-25 years, the following documents are available below for your reference:
