Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The College is committed to ensuring that students with a specific learning difficulty (eg dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD or autistic spectrum disorder), medical condition or disability are treated fairly and reasonable adjustments to provision are made as necessary.

Students with a special educational need or disability are encouraged to disclose this at the earliest opportunity to allow appropriate support to be agreed and implemented and any necessary risk assessments to be put in place.

Students with individual learning needs are offered specific support through our Additional Learning Team. For further information contact Caroline Sweeney in M106 in Meriden.

To find out more about how we approach Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, see our SEND Policy.

Talking: The Counselling Service

Counsellors
Julie Maitland
Sonia Ngetu

The counsellors offer confidential support on any issues including work or exam stress, relationships with friends or family, anxiety or depression, or anything, however small, you would like to talk about.

A Counsellor will not tell you what to do, but listen with respect and help you to make your own choices and decisions. The service is free and available to all students in the Meriden Building. Appointments can be made via Tyber messages direct to Sonia Ngetu.
