Special Educational Needs

Penarth Group School, in keeping with its mission and ethos, is committed to ensuring that all pupils make the best possible progress during their time with us. In addition, we seek to ensure that pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are identified and received the supported needed to ensure they too make progress.
All groups of pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities, benefit from the small-group teaching and flexible curriculum offer. This school is often the ‘last hope’ for pupils. However, pupils agree that the school has restored their pride in themselves, improved their attitudes to learning and put their education back on track. 

The school works well with parents, carers and other partners to make sure that children looked after receive the help and support they need. Pupils, carers and local authority representatives talk highly of the work of the school and the positive difference it has made for these pupils, both academically and personally.
