Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The school’s Mission Statement ‘Aspire, Grow, Succeed’ is at the heart of all we do. We have the highest of expectations of each and every student to secure the best outcomes for our young people.
We work in partnership with students, their parents/carers and a range of professionals from Education, Health and Social Care to implement the SEND Code of Practice (January 2015).
The Transition Team and SEND Team work closely together to support SEND students transition to Year 7 at Allerton Grange School. We offer additional opportunities to visit and run SEND Ambassador sessions so students can get to know us and the school.
The SEND Hub provides a central place where students can seek support and advice, build friendships, develop new skills and join a range of club activities. Hub Ambassadors take an active role as student leaders in the management of this provision and Hub members welcome the wider school community as visitors to this facility where inclusion, safety and the well-being of young people is paramount.
Talented, specialist Teaching Assistants work with SEND students and reasonable adjustments are put in place to support students to achieve the very best they can in their studies.

Deaf and Hearing Impairment Team (DAHIT)
Allerton Grange is a resourced school for deaf and hearing impaired children. Children are taxied in from all over the city if they need more support than could be offered in their local mainstream school. Many of the children are bilingual using both English and British Sign Language (BSL)in their everyday life. We have a bilingual policy which develops the use and understanding of both languages, as well as using the languages to access the mainstream curriculum.
