The department is a caring, lively area that encourages pupils to develop into adults who are ready to enter the world of work confidently and with a sense of purpose. We support pupils in all areas of the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities.
Aims of the Department:
We are committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential regardless of their difficulties. We recognise that some pupils need to access a differentiated curriculum which still makes learning challenging, enjoyable yet achievable. Pupils’ needs are our top priority and our aim is to be proactive, ensuring that your child’s journey through Ian Ramsey is a productive and successful partnership.
We liaise with primary schools to ensure a smooth transition into Ian Ramsey. We ensure that we have all the relevant information regarding pupils with special needs. We arrange extra visits by our staff to build relationships with vulnerable or anxious pupils. We want the transition from primary to secondary school to be a positive experience.
Some pupils will be offered additional intervention to help them develop and improve their skills in reading, comprehension and spelling. There are also intervention packages to support pupils who may struggle with social and emotional situations and difficulties such as: emotional regulation, anger management and social skills.
