Additional Educational Needs 

Loreto College is a school that takes pride in the successes of its students, be they academic, in extracurricular endeavours,  socially, and so on. Our school is truly inclusive and works hard to both challenge and meet the needs of all of its students, regardless of their level of ability.

In order to best facilitate meeting everyone's needs, our school has a dedicated Additional Educational Needs (AEN)  team. Each year group has a liaison person or anchor that takes responsibility for students with AEN in that group. This anchor is who parents will meet with should the need arise, and they will adminsiter the testing required on students to assess whether they meet the criteria for state examinations or not, etc. They actively engage in individual, small group, and whole class interventions, such as the strongly recommended NCSE's Vocabulary Enrichment Programme (VEP). Members of the AEN team are either qualified in Special Educational Needs study programmes or are currently completing their training programmes.
