SEN

At Hampton Gardens the achievements support dept provide support for those students who have been identified as having additional needs.

We believe that every child should be supported to achieve their potential and grow to be independent young people.

We are a committed team of teaching assistants and SENco with a variety of strengths and skills. Our priority is to work successfully in partnership with parents and outside agencies to provide the very best for the students we work with.

The student is at the heart of our work and our aim is to ensure they feel fully included in all aspects of school life.
