Alongside quality-first teaching CLF Post 16 offers students who have additional SEND needs bespoke support and a personal student support plan that is circulated to teaching staff to ensure that the student’s needs are met inside and outside the classroom. 

Students with SEND benefit from: 1:1 support from a senior learning support assistant, group tutoring support, mentoring, study skills sessions. Confidence building programmes and counselling services are available. 

Access arrangements for exams are assessed and supported by the SEND and pastoral team to ensure equity and equality within the CLF Post 16. 

If you are concerned that your son/daughter requires additional needs for learning or support with literacy, numeracy, exams access or general support please contact general enquiries at CLF Post 16 on 0117 9882525.
