SEND and More Able Pupils
Pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Mrs S Nash is our SENDCO. Mrs Nash usually works on a Monday and Tuesday in school. She is more than happy to speak with any parent who has concerns and would like some advice. To make an appointment with her, please call the office and she will get back to you as soon as she can.
How does the school know if children need extra help?
We monitor the progress and development of all children very closely and regularly. Children who are not making expected progress are picked up through half-termly Pupil Progress Review Meetings. In this meeting, a discussion takes place concerning children who are experiencing difficulty and what further support can be given to aid their progression. Following this meeting, if a child is provided with extra support, parents will be informed.

More Able Pupils
More able children are identified and their special educational needs supported in many ways throughout their time at Highgate School. Class lessons are always differentiated with open-ended questions included to ensure that all children are challenged in their learning. Master classes for more able children from other schools take place throughout the year.
