SEND Support

Derby Cathedral School prides itself on being an inclusive school. We cater for all students.  We work in close collaboration with our feeder primary schools and a number of external professional agencies, including the NHS, CAMHS and the Specialist Teaching and Psychology Service (STePs) at Derby City Council, to ensure we have all of the relevant information and advice for students with additional needs.

We work very hard for our students with SEND to ensure that they receive the right type of help to underpin their education. Our 'Nurture' provision assists those students who need extra intervention to access the English and Maths curriculums.  We also have a provision called 'Restore' that delivers social, emotional and mental health support alongside a bespoke curriculum delivered by a qualified teacher.  This provision also provides a full-time TFTF (Think For The Future)  mentor.  Our 'Learning Hub' is designed to offers academic mentoring for those students who need a little more guidance outside of the classroom. Throughout the school community, our SEND team work hard to support all our students and they show complete dedication to ensuring that all learners succeed no matter what barriers may exist.

Our SENDCO is Ms. S Oakes and our link Senior Leader is Mr. P Hammerton. If you wish to speak with our SENDCO she can be contacted via telephone 01332 325710 or by emailing s.oakes@derbycathedralschool.org.uk
