At William Morris Sixth Form we believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to achieve their goals through education. To keep our ethos of inclusive education, all of our SEND students are integrated fully into WMSF life and have all of their lessons delivered in mainstream classes throughout the whole site.
We have a strong culture of supporting students with SEND who are fully integrated into lessons and enrichment. Support is kept discreet, and the additional adult will rotate around the rooms supporting all students. This allows our young adults to grow in confidence and independence without being made to feel different from their peers. Additional support outside class can be accessed in E11 which is in our purpose built Learning Support building (E Block) where Learning in the shape of 1:1 support, group interventions, clubs and drop-ins take place.
Whilst academic success is important at the WMSF, so too are social skills: many of our students have struggled to make friendships in the past. We run trips, clubs and workshops throughout the year with the aim to further friendships, independence and employability skills. Activities in previous years have included visiting Thorpe Park, Travel club, Baking club, taking part or watching football, Financial Literacy workshops and trips to the Houses of Parliament, Theatre, Comic Con and many more!
Our Learning Support department welcomes students with a variety of different needs: each student will be assigned a member of our LS department and a tutor upon joining WMSF. These two figures will be central to the progress of our students and will be in regular contact with home to keep parents and carers updated on progress.
We can support students within the following areas:
The Local Offer sets out all provisions relating to Education, Health and Care that young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, their parents and carers can access in order to meet the needs stated in their Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCPs).
