Special Educational Needs


Deyes High School aims to provide meaningful and effective learning support for all pupils with Special Educational Needs.

We follow a graduated approach to SEN support, providing inclusive classroom environments to ensure that pupils make the best possible progress.

We aim to create a safe, caring and supportive setting for pupils to develop into young adults who are well prepared for when they move on to their next phase of education, employment or training.
