At Six Mile Integrated we are committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all children. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum, and to be included in all aspects of school life.
We use teacher judgement and standardised scores to identify difficulties. Through early intervention approaches, the school works closely with the child and parent in actively supporting the child’s needs. Pupils with Special Educational Needs receive in class support from their teacher and, where appropriate, small withdrawal sessions.
The school works closely with all external agencies in the support of all pupils with SEN and will always work alongside parents to keep them informed of their child’s support and progress.
The school also has two learning support centres for pupils with moderate learning difficulties.
Gifted & talented
At Six Mile Integrated we recognise that some pupils will be gifted or talented. Any child identified with an exceptional ability will be nurtured and supported appropriately.
