SEND Information Report


Chiswick School has a carefully considered programme to ensure that it meets the learning needs of all students, including those with specific special educational needs. The school is supported by the Local Authority and other appropriate outside agencies, to ensure that all pupils; regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Chiswick School endeavours to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with special educational need/s being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible. 

The intent of Chiswick School Personalised Learning Department (SEND Department) is to ensure that all learners’ needs are met and that Inclusion is at the heart of our policies and practices. We want to give all students, including our SEND students, the support and encouragement to reach the highest level of personal achievement. Where students have additional needs, active steps will be taken to prevent these from becoming a barrier to learning and participation. Our Personalised Learning programmes have a focus on learners developing their skills through oracy, reading and developing cultural capital resulting in  D.R.I.V.E.N individuals who are prepared for adulthood.

SEND students are supported in a range of different ways, some of which include:

  • In-class support and out of class monitoring for students with EHCPs and students on the SEND register provided by an experienced and dedicated team of SEND staff.     
  • Targeted personalised learning & intervention groups run by the SENDCo, SENDCo Designate, HLTAs (Higher Level Teaching Assistants) or Teaching Assistants aimed at supporting learners with Literacy, Numeracy, Communication & Interaction or Social, Emotional & Mental Health  needs. All interventions are carefully monitored and their impact measured.         
  • A qualified counsellor to support students in a one to one environment (to whom students may be referred).    
  • A commissioned speech and language therapist.    
  • Referral to outside agencies such as Educational Psychology, CAMHS,  Mental Health Support Team’s Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner and mentoring. 
  • A KS3 homework club after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for invited SEND students.
  • The Deputy SENDCo who can assess students for exam access arrangements.    

The department comprises the following staff members who will be happy to help if you have any questions:

In addition to the above, we have a number of Teaching Assistants.

The link governor for SEND is Councillor John Todd.
