Special Educational Provisions

Provision for students with disabilities and additional educational needs


At Testwood we look at the needs of a student with special educational needs and, in liaison with all other professionals involved with the student, plan a comprehensive learning package, which will allow for measurable learning opportunities to be put in place. This means that the student and all adults involved in supporting that student will meet to plan the educational provision best suited to the needs of the individual student. At all times we will work closely with parents to ensure that their child receives the very best educational experience that Testwood can offer.


At Testwood we have a Special Educational Needs Policy therefore every student is provided with equal opportunity to access all aspects of our curriculum. Testwood School welcomes any suggestions as to how we can further improve this facility.

How accessible is the school?

At Testwood our premises comprise of two main teaching blocks. Some departments are based on the first floor of our buildings including all science labs.  As a result of this, we are currently not accessible to wheelchair users in many areas.

Additional educational needs

The Governing body is confident that every student with additional educational needs who is currently on roll at Testwood will be provided with an educational support package designed to cater for their individual educational requirements. The Governing body are informed of any changes of policy which may affect the education of students with additional educational needs, and in what way the school will respond to those changes. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
