Information on Inclusion & SEND at Lea Manor High School

Lea Manor High School is fully committed to an inclusive education for all its pupils and supporting pupils who may have Special Educational Needs (SEN) and/ or disabilities. This includes pupils with Learning Difficulties, Specific Learning difficulties including dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum, Hearing Impairment, Visual Impairment and those with Social Emotional and Behavioural difficulties.

Pupils’ needs are assessed through a range of testing procedures including reading, writing and spelling. We use information from junior schools, staff referrals, pupil referrals, parents/carers and from advisory teachers to ensure support and provision is in place.

All pupils identified with SEN are included in our SEN register as SEN Support and those with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) in line with the SEN Code of Practice.

Appropriate provision is put in place according to the individual need of the pupils. Pupils identified as needing SEN support and those with an EHCP will have either an Individual Behaviour Plan (IBP) or a Pastoral Support Plan (PSP). These Plans are reviewed regularly.

Pupils with EHCPs are supported in line with the objectives of their plan and these are reviewed at least annually. This could include, in class support, small group work and in some cases one to one work with a Learning Support Assistant away from the classroom.

We have a highly experienced and dedicated team that can support the wide range of students with SEN.


Lea Manor has a specialist provision for students with Social Communication Difficulties, Autism, called Maple. The students in this provision have Education, Health and Care Plans with their primary need as Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). To gain a place in this provision, students must be referred through Luton Local Education Authority and have an EHCP. Places are consulted in partnership with the Local Education Authority and Lea Manor High School.
