Caedmon College Whitby and our Whitby Secondary Partnership partner of Eskdale School, in collaboration with our primary school colleagues, share a special and unique learning community on which we wish to develop our provision to meet the needs of students with Communication and Interaction difficulties and disabilities at secondary level. We already have a strong SEND provision at Caedmon College and accommodate additional Alternative Provision for our Federation for students who need to be educated out of mainstream lessons.
We are very excited to have had the opportunity to develop our provision further for children with significant communication and interaction needs for our Federation, to be accommodated on our Normanby Site of Caedmon College Whitby, building on our existing specialist SEND provision. This will be the second targeted provision of this kind for Whitby and our local area - East Whitby Primary Academy has developed similar provision at primary level this year and we remain in close collaboration with them, as well as with our wider community of local primary schools.
The aim of the Lead Teacher for the provision will be to ensure the provision of an inclusive, bespoke education model for up to 8 children to enable them to meet their individual academic and social potential. Each child will require a personalised timetable and educational programme which the ATA for the provision will assist with. The postholder will operate under the direction of the Whitby Secondary Partnership Federation SENCos from Eskdale School and Caedmon College Whitby, with the Lead Teacher managing day-to-day decisions and operations and liaising with parents and other staff, as necessary. The timetables to be developed will be both for mainstream lessons that the students are able to partake in and for any specialist teaching within our new inclusion area which will be housed above the College Learning Centre. The timetables will be agreed with staff and parents and will depend upon each child's needs, adapting as the child develops.
Our new targeted provision area will provide an inclusive space specifically designed and equipped to support children with a range of communication and interaction needs. This may include children with a diagnosis of autism, speech and language difficulties or children who present with challenges in their social interactions. The provision will be needs’ led rather than diagnosis led.
The students will need to be taught by a specialist communication and interaction teacher, who works closely alongside the SENCo and our mainstream class teachers to create individual programmes to reflect the children’s EHCP outcomes and to address any barriers to their learning within mainstream lessons. Our vision is that the students who have a place in this targeted provision will be equally supported to be fully-integrated members of the College community.
The new provision will be situated upstairs in the College Learning Resources Centre, and will comprise of a main classroom space, an intervention area, a sensory room and a quiet room. We also have suitable outdoor spaces that the students will be able to access, including a gardening area.
