Support for scholars with additional needs

Class of 2027: welcome to the Mountain Support webpage! We are very much looking forward to you joining our fantastic academy. Our department has a range of different functions, so please read through the information on here. 

The Mountain Support team help all scholars climb their mountain to university or a real alternative by giving additional support to those who need it. We know that any scholar may require the support at any point during their school career and that support may temporary or long-term.  Our department replaces a number of departments that might be found within a traditional school, including SEND, medical / first aid, pastoral, mentoring and safeguarding. Here are the staff members in the department and a short video to introduce ourselves:

  • Ms Tizard: Head of Mountain Support (SENCo)
  • Mrs Power: Inclusion Manager
  • Miss Barlow: Health Fellow
  • Miss Bell: Prevention Fellow
  • Mrs King: Safeguarding & Wellbeing Officer

If you receive support for additional needs at primary school, you will be receiving a Mountain Support Welcome Pack in the post in July. You will also be able to download this pack here on the website in July.

If you have any concerns or questions, please email our Moutaing Support Team: DMA_MS@dixonsma.com

Good luck to our trainees who start their Stage A placements tomorrow. It’s not been a typical centre based training experience but our trainees have been brilliant and are truly committed to making a difference. The future of teaching is bright! https://t.co/n6Exnt0Rho
