All students with SEND are identified on entry to the school. Students are supported within lessons, one to one and with outside agency support.  

Some of the outside agencies that come into school are the Communication and Autism Team, Pupil and School Support Services, Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist and the Sensory Support Services when needed.  

The SENCO and Assistant SENCO are always willing to speak to parents about any needs they feel their children may have and how they can be best supported in school.  

Please see the Reach SEND Policy and SEND Information Report for detailed information of how students with SEND are supported within Reach School.

Our SENCO is Amanda Thomas. Our Assistant SENCO is Alison Miller 

Pastoral Hub

In the pastoral team we support students and families on a wide range of issues from short term interventions to more long term work. This covers everything from attendance to safeguarding, home visits to in school support. We work alongside families and outside agencies to ensure that needs are met in a safe and friendly way.

To ensure that all students who attend REACH School are supported to overcome any barriers to their education so they can fulfill their potential and achieve. We also look at behaviour initiatives to engage the students and reward them for their positive achievements. This can range from a positive nomination from individual staff, end of term trips to voucher reward incentive.
