Beacon Hill School is an inclusive school where all students are included and valued as part of the school community.
Students who require additional support are identified using the ESF Levels of Adjustments.
Students identified at Level of Adjustment 1 or 2 are supported in the mainstream classroom by the Head of Special Educational Needs and team of SEN Educational Assistants. Student needs may range from mild Speech and Language Difficulties, Attention Deficit Disorder, Specific Learning Difficulties, Sensory Integration and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Students at Level of Adjustment 3 or 4 are identified as Learning Support. These students have more moderate needs that may require specialised teaching from our SEN team. At Beacon Hill School we have capacity for 21 Learning Support Students which include three Learning Support Teachers and three Learning Support Educational assistants.
Whilst students are encouraged to access the mainstream curriculum, they may also benefit from additional programming offered by the SEN department:
Withdrawal Literacy and/or Numeracy groups
Perceptual Motor Programming
Fine Motor Programs
Social Communication curriculum
Software programs to support memory and/or academic development
Sensory Integration program
Friends For Life – anxiety and resilience programs
Psycho-educational Assessments with an ESF Educational Psychologist (by referral)
Speech and Language Therapy (parent funded)
Occupational Therapy (parent funded)
