    Learning Support

    Special Educational Needs and Disability at Langdon Park school.

    “All teachers are teachers of pupils with special educational needs. Teaching such pupils is therefore a whole school responsibility, requiring a whole school response.” OFSTED.

    Langdon Park has Inclusion at the centre of its ethos. Every teacher has responsibility in their classrooms for ensuring that every child has access to an appropriate curriculum and is supported to make progress to the very best of their ability. Teachers are trained and supported in this aim by the Learning support faculty.
