Inclusion & SEN
At KHS, we aim to provide a high quality education for all our students. We believe that all students are entitled to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. We recognise that everyone needs to be personally challenged throughout their school life and we encourage all students to reach their full potential.
Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
At Kingsbury High School, we have a whole school approach, consistent with many schools in Brent. We welcome students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and we meet their needs in a positive and inclusive way. SEND may be identified before entry or once the pupil is attending school, or a parent or a member of staff may identify them. These needs are discussed with parents, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity before taking steps to address them. Inclusion staff also work closely with the Student Development team to ensure our students' social and emotional welfare is a priority, alongside their academic progress.
All students with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and others identified on the SEN register have an Individual Pupil Plan (IPP). We have a team of specialist staff we can draw on to support our students with SEND and our teachers work hard to ensure they can access learning in the classroom. Information on SEND is shared with teachers using a whole school Provision Map. We also map and evaluate our interventions this way.
Kingsbury High School has a Deaf Resource base, called the Total Communication Resource (TCR). Students with a significant hearing impairment, and who have an EHCP, are able to access this unit for support, whilst also accessing mainstream lessons. We have a teacher of the Deaf (ToD) and a small team of communication support workers.
