Our Core Values
At Gosfield School, our aim is for all students to achieve their personal best. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated appropriately, to cater for individual needs, thus enabling children to fulfil their potential socially and academically. Students of all ages can attend additional individual literacy/numeracy lessons tailored specifically to their needs with a member of the Learning Support Department. In addition, students will often have the benefit of in-class support from our highly experienced team of learning support assistants. The SENCO or Prep School SEND Coordinator liaise with teachers on a regular basis and parents of students on the SEND register are invited to attend regular meetings to review their child’s progress.
To prepare for GCSE studies, if appropriate, psychometric testing is arranged to assess students for exam access arrangements. This may involve extra time or a reader for those who qualify under the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) regulations.
The Learning Support Department also provides support via its daily lunchtime homework club. This provides an informal and quiet environment, in which students can complete homework, knowing that if there is anything they do not understand, help will be at hand.
The Gosfield School Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) policy outlines how we will do our best to ensure that the necessary provision is made for any students who have special educational needs and disabilities. Please provide relevant reports (Educational Psychology and medical) to the Admissions Team when applying so we can assess how we can support your child. We can arrange meetings with our SENCO to discuss any relevant learning needs.
