Special Educational Needs

School Offer

At Kings Norton Girls’ School each student’s current skills and levels of attainment are assessed on entry through reading, comprehension and spelling tests, Midyis and PASS data. We use this information, with any other information from previous schools, to decide whether students require Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND) support.

Through regular assessment we are able to identify students who are making less than expected progress for their age and individual circumstances.

This may be because their progress is:

  • Significantly slower than that of their peers starting from the same point
  • Failing to match or better their previous rate of progress
  • Failing to close the attainment gap between the student and their peers
  • Widening the attainment gap

Below you will find information that will answer your questions on Special Educational Needs and disabilities and how we provide for them at Kings Norton Girls’ School.

If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact our SENCO and Assistant Headteacher, Miss Cartin, at gcartin@kngs.co.uk or call on 0121 675
