Teaching Assistant Level 2 – Perryfields Academy
Inclusion / SEND Department
Perryfields Academy is a fully inclusive mainstream secondary school, which is committed to meeting the needs of all students, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We aim to celebrate their success and increase their development through a diverse mainstream curriculum with integrated specialist support and varied teaching styles so that they gain the skills and confidence they need in their future lives. All members of Perryfields Academy are entitled to be valued equally and to enjoy respect as individuals.
The Inclusion team is led by Sarah Thompson, SENDCo/Assistant Headteacher, and Siobhan Bradley, Assistant SENDCo. The team is made up of 8 LSPs who have a wide range of knowledge and experience. All LSPs are key workers and lead intervention groups / small group work on a weekly basis.
Our aim is to identify any student’s SEND as early as possible in order to put in place appropriate interventions and resources. Students who face challenges in their learning, despite receiving high-quality teaching, will be likely to need additional strategies, or different provision, in order to meet their needs, removing barriers to learning by deploying effective special educational provision. We also have a specialist team to support students with SEMH needs
There is a wide range of interventions and provisions on offer at Perryfields and these are open to all students. We run over 20 intervention sessions per week. These range from: Sandwell Numeracy, VIP, Stairway to Spelling, CBT and socials skills. Additionally, we run a wide range of activities to support SEND students including Homework Club, Lunch and Break Time Social Clubs.
