We would like to take this opportunity to say welcome to the King Ecgbert School community. Although your transition will be different to every other year, we will do our best to make sure that you have a smooth and happy move to our school.

The school closures means that we have an opportunity to try some new and exciting ideas, and set up this dedicated transition webpage. Over the next few weeks, information will be appearing to help you find out about how your life at King Ecgbert School is going to look. This will include a virtual tour, a message from our Y7s during lockdown and information about your start at school.

Keep checking the website and to start with have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions powerpoint below for further guidance.

Frequently asked SEN Questions

King Ecgbert School is committed to ensuring all students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum whatever their gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, needs or abilities. All children have the ability to learn and should be equally valued whether or not they have SEND. Inclusion is most likely to be achieved when their diversity is recognised and regarded positively.

All King Ecgbert, all teachers are teachers of SEND and have responsibility for planning the curriculum to ensure it is accessible to all. The varying needs of students will be addressed through personalised learning and through appropriate differentiation wherever possible. Special educational provision at King Ecgbert is underpinned by high quality first teaching in the classroom.  Additional provision is provided to ensure students have the necessary skills to access the curriculum independently wherever possible. KES provides support for students with communication and interaction needs; cognition and learning needs; social, emotional and mental health needs and sensory and physical needs. The school also has an Integrated Resource which provides support for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

To ensure standardisation, the Local Authority’s ‘Sheffield Grid’ is also used to assess the    level of need.
