The Learning Support Team

KES has a highly qualified and experienced SEND team, led by two SENCOs. One for Literacy and one for Numeracy.

The team includes Learning Support Assistants (LSAs), many of whom have specialist areas of expertise or who lead a year team, a qualified counsellor, Inclusion Manager, Sixth Form Mentor and Mentor to ASD students. The English, Maths and Humanities faculties benefit from Specialist LSAs attached to the Faculty.

All staff receive regular SEND training and those supporting students with specific needs will receive regular and relevant training (professional development) via internal and external sources. The LSA team are regularly involved in whole school training.

The SEND department will access outside agencies such as the EP Service, Occupational Therapists, CAMHS or Speech and Language Therapists, if further expertise is required.
