At Holme Grange School we believe that all children are entitled to an education that will enable them to develop their full potential, be that intellectual, physical, aesthetic, creative, emotional, spiritual or social; finding appropriate challenge in our learning environment.

All students have individual needs, which put personalised learning at the heart of our and learning and teaching. Holme Grange is committed to providing an equality of challenge for all students and an inspiring education for life.

Children with special needs may at times require a more specialised programme than the majority of children of the same age, in part or in all of their school work. These children may need extra help because of a range of needs, such as: thinking and understanding; physical or sensory difficulties; emotional difficulties; speech and language difficulties or how they relate to and behave with other people.

The Accelerated Learning Centre (ALC) is staffed by a team of specialist dyslexia tutors with OCR/RSA Diploma or Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties, in addition to their teaching qualifications. Holme Grange employs an experienced and qualified SENCO. Like all schools, we maintain a register of Learners with Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD), to record and to track the progress of pupils about whom a concern has been expressed.
