We are also closely involved with our Community of Learning; a cluster of schools working collaboratively to support children with SEND. As a Community, in order to support students with SEND, we have secured initiatives such as Lexia, a computerised reading program, as well as time and expertise from the movement difficulties team and the speech and language team. The impact and effectiveness of Community of Learning resources are reviewed annually in line with budget considerations.
