At Lawnswood School, we believe that every young person should achieve their potential.
Even before a young person begins their Lawnswood journey, we visit primary schools to ensure we get to know students and their needs as well as possible. We visit students in their primary schools and offer extra visits, in addition to those offered for other young people.
Each pupil is treated as an individual and we work hard to match our resources to their needs. Quality First Teaching drives our approach to inclusion, and most students are taught within mainstream lessons. We offer further support and teaching within our Access groups in Years 7 to 9, and through targeted Maths and English lessons at Key Stage 4. Where young people may benefit from further intervention, we offer additional support aimed at improving Maths and Literacy/English skills, which are crucial for their future pathways.
Our experienced team of support staff are dedicated and get to know our young people very well. We work closely with Pastoral teams within school and a range of external agencies, e.g.: STARS, SCOPE, Educational Psychologist services, SENSAP/SENIT and DAHIT to help us provide the best possible support for our students.
We were lucky to be able to open the Link Provision in September 2019. This is a provision aimed at providing short-term SEMH support and general teaching for more vulnerable students. It is staffed by a team of specialist colleagues.
We are happy to show students and parents/carers around our school and discuss our provision in more detail, so do contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.
