Special Educational Needs department
The SEN department at Vijay International School is responsible for overseeing the support for children who have 'Special Educational Needs' (SEN) and 'English as an Additional Language' (EAL). We believe in developing the full potential of every child at our school, no matter what their academic ability.

Through student support, an inclusive curriculum and staff development we aim to recognise and celebrate our students' efforts and progress, enabling them to achieve their maximum potential. We support students from Reception classes all the way through to KS4, through individualized provision, small group support and in-class interventions. We have a strong focus on developing an inclusive community and recognise that pastoral support is equally important as academic.

Here at VISP, we believe strongly in developing and supporting students’ speech, language and communication skills (SLCN) as a strong basis for their academic skills. We also support many other needs such as literacy, numeracy, motor skills, memory skills and emotional difficulties. Through regular monitoring and screening, conversations with parents and students as well as frequent staff training and development, we try to ensure we are continuously meeting the needs of our students and developing the skills they need to flourish independently.

Staff in the SEN section include Mrs. Thompson (SENco), Mrs. Stravens (SEN TA) and Miss Nelsha (SEN TA).

Should you have any questions about our provision or what we do, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mrs. Thompson at
