SEND General

Church Stretton School is a mainstream, inclusive school that is committed to helping pupils reach their full potential and to gain confidence and independence, regardless of their additional learning needs.

Some pupils may simply need a short catch up programme in literacy or numeracy, and others may have more complex needs. Our aim is to identify and address specific needs as early as possible.

The Team

We have an expert team of specialist teaching assistants who assess, plan and implement personalised one to one support for pupils with a variety of needs.

We believe that provision for students with SEN is the responsibility of all teachers, who work closely with the SENCo and Learning Support Team, to make sure they deliver exactly the right help.

Guidance and advice is also provided by the many external agencies that we have formed partnerships with and liaise with on a regular basis.

Contact with parents is very important and pupils are always involved in decisions about their learning. We hold regular meetings with individual parents and provide detailed information about their child’s progress.


The amount of help varies, depending on the degree of learning support required, and, where possible, we offer the following:

  • In-class support
  • The Preparation of differentiated or modified materials
  • An intervention base for students experiencing temporary difficulties
  • Support for students with their homework
  • Curriculum support and help with personal organisation
  • Short-term intervention programmes covering a range of needs
  • Access arrangements for students during assessments
