Welcome to the Student Support Unit (SSU) at Hasmonean High School for Girls
Our SSU Team strives to ensure that the Additional Educational Needs of all our students are met. We provide support to students with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), and English as an Additional Language (EAL). We aim to promote the opportunities and achievements of all in line with our whole school ethos. Liaison with staff and knowing our students is essential and with this in mind we meet the students, and visit their primary school before they join Hasmonean, in order to facilitate a successful transition to Secondary School.
The SENDCO, Dr N Alexander-Passe is happy to meet both prospective and current parents of students at the school, on both sites. He has set aside four 30 minute sessions each Wednesday morning starting at 9.00 am (girls’ school site) and another four sessions each Thursday morning starting at 8.55 am (boys’ school site). This is a permanent arrangement throughout the school academic year.
During this current period, Zoom sessions are also available.
The SENDCO can be contacted at email@example.com
The Deputy SENDCO (Girls site), Ms M Mogaji can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
The SSU team includes SEND teachers, EAL Co-ordinator, and LSA Educators, and the school works with a range of external specialists that support students at the school.
In September 2020, we will be introducing two new roles: an ADHD Mentor and a Speech and Language Therapist, both one day a week. This would be part of the ‘ordinary available SEND provision’ being offered by the school.
